Gren provided the chickpea curries right up to his reluctant retirement as club MC around 3 years ago, though the curries have been free in the time of my 20 years association with the club. Incidently, the curries are still made every week by a rota of members and are still free to all attendees. Gren graduated to a small aged motor home which was frequently seen parked around Whitby at festival time.
