Our Christmas Ramble is fast approaching and we thought we would get the ball rolling by asking members to provisionally book a place so that we can gauge numbers.
Last year was well supported and we laid on two coaches so that everyone could enjoy a festive ramble and sumptuous meal in good company. We plan to do the same this year if the demand is high. Here are a few details to let you know what we are planning.
Our Christmas Ramble will take place on Sunday 1st December
The ramble will be to Windermere and we will have the usual selections of walks to choose from. Daylight hours will have shortened by December so we plan to leave Windermere at 16:00.
Our Festive Meal will be held at The Longlands Hotel at Tewitfield and as before, we will be hosted in the Function Suite. Members who were there last year will understand why we booked again almost immediately. We plan to have a two-course meal (main and dessert) Here are the details:
