Our Christmas Ramble was so popular we needed two coaches! Although we had to hastily re-organise the walks as we couldn’t get the coaches through to Malham, everyone was in good spirits (no doubt helped by the Gluwein!) and enjoyed a great day’s walking.
Our Festive meal was excellent and the team at the Longlands Hotel at Tewitfield really looked after us. The surroundings of the function room were very convivial and the food was first class.
We had a huge raffle, raising funds for our 3 main charities, NW Air Ambulance, Patterdale Mountain Rescue and ‘Fix the Fells’. Many thanks to those who selflessly donated prizes and to everyone who bought tickets, it made a real difference.
Awards were made to Peter Dent and Tony Morgan who had pretty much been on every ramble this year. Jayne who helps to shepherd you onto the coaches and Geoff Rothwell who enjoyed a birthday with us were also given walk vouchers to enjoy in the new year.
It’s been another successful year and with record attendances, we are in very good shape for 2019. A new programme has been compiled and will be voted on at the AGM. With 5 new destinations (or at least a return to some old ones) we feel sure we’ll have something to please everyone.
Cartmel on Sunday 6th January awaits and with another full coach we seem to be starting the year with a bang.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR MEMBERS!

Members who take photos on any of our walks are invited to forward them to Allan Clarke as we want to refresh our Photo Gallery.
Similarly, if you would like to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard we would love to hear of your experiences with us.
MALHAM WALK: Although overcast, all the groups set off in good spirits. Cherry headed to Goredale Scar while Angela took her group across Hanlith Moore and visited for Janet’s Foss. Kevin and his party left the coach at East Marton for a trek along the Pennine Way. Everyone met up back at the coach at the very popular Town End Farm Shop & Cafe, where Tony was spotted drinking TEA!
Due to the diversions it was a bit of a hike over for the meal at The Longlands Hotel and Tewitfield, but it was well worth all the travelling.
It is with great sadness we have to report that one of our members, Carol Clayton, wife of our former rambles secretary Richard, passed away on New Years Eve after a long illness.
Our thoughts are with Richard and the family at this difficult time.
