Friday, 1st December 2017   CASTLETON WEEKENDER    2 nights    Grade 2
Join us on a walking weekend away to start the Christmas celebrations this year! We will stay Friday and Saturday night. There will be walks on Saturday and Sunday. There are many pubs, usually have bands on in the evening. The Christmas lights will be up together with a festival of lights in the church with lots of pretty Christmas trees. We will stay at the YHA in Castleton which is one of the nicest YHAs I have stayed in (and that's a lot!). Let me know ASAP if you want to come and I will start the group booking. The approximate cost for the dorm is £19 a night. Thanks! Clare xx

Friday, 4th May 2018   SNOWDONIA WEEKEND 2018    3 nights    Grade 3
I know that it seems a long way off but I am organising a trip away to Snowdonia for the group for the first bank holiday weekend in May 2018. The dates are 4th May until 7th May 2018. The YHA is Snowdon Bryn Gwynant which is close to the lovely little town of Beddgelert. It is in the heart of Snowdonia National Park with plenty of hiking opportunities but also shops and pubs nearby in Beddgelert for us to venture to after walking. Walks are yet to be decided but you can walk to the Watkins path (up Snowdon) from the hostel, so a strong possibility. The cost of the accommodation varies from £16.99 for a bed in a dorm, more if you wish to have a private room. I am happy to arrange accommodation for the dorms. If you would like a private room, please could you arrange yourself. The hostel we are staying at is 4 miles from Beddgelert. The link to the website is: http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/snowdon-bryn-gwynant. Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to come so that I can secure the booking. Thanks all. Clare and Ed. NB - This event is for paid ramblers members only.

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.
