CHANGES TO Camping, B&B weekend 22-24 June 2012

CHANGES TO Camping, B&B weekend 22-24 June

It seems that the clubs ‘weekend away’ in the lakes, at Lorton has a serious problem! It well nigh impossible to find accommodation in the area because it is fully booked, the reason being that there is a high profile wedding taking place that same weekend and another major event in the vicinity too.

Geoff Jackson has suggested a weekend at Robin Hoods Bay instead, which seems to be an admirable solution to the problem!

Those interested going to Robin Hoods Bay should make use of the website www.robin-hoods-bay.co.uk to find accommodation, the focus for the stay being Hooks House Farm camp site above the bay. Fylingthorpe is a short walk away too and the website covers B&B’s in the whole area. The date is exactly the same, i.e. Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June.

Please let anyone interested but not on email know about the change. An announcement will be made at the next walk.

Best wishes & sorry about the change,

Barry
