Friday, 24th August 2018   AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND AWAY - BORROWDALE YHA, LAKE DISTRICT    3 nights    Grade 3
Group Booking Info:
I have a reservation for a 2 bed dorm, a 3 bed dorm, a 4 bed dorm and 6 bed dorm.
Allocation to smaller dorms will be based on first come, first served! To be in the queue, I'll need an EMAIL, TEXT or FACEBOOK MESSAGE stating your interest!
Ultimately, it will also depend on numbers and the mix of boys and girls. This is still a long way off, but I will release unneeded rooms if there is no demand.
So please think about it NOW and let me know if you want to be included in the group booking.
Cost:Likely to between 90 and 110 pounds dependent numbers and mix.
The Borrowdale YHA is in a fabulous valley location, surrounded by the fantastic mountain scenery of The Lake District.
Walks will include an ascent of Scafell Pike via a route I don't believe our group has done before.
Great Gable is another ascent directly accessible from the hostel. More details will given near the time.

Friday, 7th December 2018   CHRISTMAS IN MATLOCK    2 nights    Grade 2
Fancy something different for the Christmas weekend away this year? Instead of Castleton, we are going to go to Matlock! Lovely little town with pretty boutiques, nice bars, pubs and a fab choice of yummy restaurants. There is also nearby Matlock Bath which i think is like a seaside resort without the beach and sea! Cable cars and Castles also nearby! As well as all this, we will fit some fab walking in too! I bet it will be really pretty at Christmas time! I have provisionally booked 14 rooms at the Premier Inn for 2 nights at the cheap price of £52.10 per person based on 2 people sharing a room. Let me know if you can come. The rooms will go on a first come first served basis. However you must be a member of the ramblers and people affiliated with our group will take priority. The address for the Premier Inn is Bakewell Road, Matlock, Derbyshire DE4 3AZ.

Notes on Weekend Bookings:
Please help the organiser by booking, and paying, for weekends as early as possible.

If a late booking is absolutely necessary, then it may be possible to do this directly with the Youth Hostel. This requires individual membership of the YHA (currently about £14). Such bookings must be made on an individual basis. No attempt should be made to refer, or "tag on", to the group booking, since this creates confusion for both the hostel warden and the organiser.
