Other Forthcoming Events

If you have any suggestions or preferences for trips and events please let the committee know. We have the following planned so far:

Approach to Canterbury Cathedral

Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd February 2019


Dave P

We're staying at Kipps Hostel, an independent hostel in Canterbury. It is a short walk to the city centre and the historic attractions including the renowned Canterbury Cathedral. Canterbury also makes an ideal base for day trips to Dover and Leeds Castle, and walks on the downs and coast.

Easter in the Lake District

Five nights at the Langton Centre, Hartsop in Patterdale, at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass, near Brotherswater, 2 miles from Ullswater and in sight of Hellvelyn and the High Street range. An ideal location for some of the best walking in the Lake District.

The centre has central heating, showers, a lounge with easy chairs, dining room and games room, a drying room and well equipped kitchen.

Pillows and blankets are provided; you need to bring a pillowcase and sleeping bag or sheets and duvets.

To find it, turn off A592 near Brotherswater onto the lane to Hartsop. We are in the big white house immediately on the left. Grid reference NY405133, postcode CA11 0NZ. Parking behind the house (by the games room, not in the lane).

Cost will be about £18 per night including food, plus around £38 petrol contribution for those sharing lifts from Essex.
