The Flying Man (& women) of Pocklington Meet
15/05/2020 - 17/05/2020
Come and be a part of the Flying Man (and women) meet. The Flying Man was a very unfortunate person and his attempts at flying did not end well, unlike ours. So our meet is in honour of Thomas Pelling, the infamous 'Flying Man'. He attempted to put on a show in the village by 'flying' with the aid of wires across the village from the church tower, but he didn't manage to fly very far, apart from vertically, and sadly to his death. We can do far better! Competing as always for the Flying Man trophy - awarded to the pilot who flies the closest to the church tower. We are returning to The Mile caravan site, which is at the rear of The Mile Farm Shop (The Mile Farm Shop & Camping, The Mile, Pocklington, York, East Yorkshire YO42 1TW) Barbeque on site on Saturday evening with fun under the marquee until we all stagger home to our various forms of temporary abode! On site are toilets, showers, washing up points, hard standing, electric hook ups, farm shop, cafe, childrens play area, and security gate for caravans. All on-site overnight stays must be pre-booked and paid for please.
