Armed Forces day on Saturday saw many crowds gather at the new Memorial near to the Tourist Information Centre to watch a parade by the Cadets and browse the stalls nearby.  Stands included those run by the Air Force Cadets, a collection of Whitby made goods and bric a brac.  Whitby Falconers showcased many birds of prey with the opportunity of seeing them close up.  A German military gun was also on display which perhaps brought home in a small way the horrors of war.

A Harley Davidson stand provided the opportunity to view some excellent motorbikes with gleaming chrome and bodywork.

The calm seas provided visitors with the opportunity for a boat trip out to sea with one of the various pleasure craft available.   On Thursday, the lifeboat was called out to rescue a vessel stranded thirty miles offshore due to engine failure and on Monday the emergency services were available to help a teenage girl stranded on the cliffs near to the Spa.

Of course, there were lots more other events in and Around Whitby this week, this is just a small percentage.
