***Newsflash*** NDWG New Year Trip Away (4 nights from Wednesday 30th December 2015 to Sunday 3rd January 2016)
It gives both Rob Stevens and I great pleasure to open this year’s New Year Weekend Away at the Canal House Pub, Nottingham, at this year’s NDWG AGM on 13th October 2015, after the formal elections have finished.
This year we’re going to Keswick in the North Western Lake District.
Keswick is a small town situated next to perhaps the most beautiful of all the lakes, Derwentwater. There are may small shops, bars, restaurants and cosy pubs situated in the town, so evening post walk entertainment will be lively at this festive time of year.
Many classic hill walks are within very easy reach of our accommodation, such as; Cat Bells, Skiddaw, Walla Crags, Scafell Pike (England's highest peak) and Great Gable or just a post New Year stroll round Derwentwater. We hope to have two walks billed each day, catering for all abilities and weather scenarios.
We are staying at the 4 star YHA Keswick, which is conveniently located less than five minutes walk to town centre and less than ten minutes walk to the Lake. http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/keswick A full breakfast (with Veggy option) is kindly provided for us every morning.
24 spaces have been booked (12 male and 12 female) at the cost of £98 for the 4 nights including breakfast .
Demand is expected to be very high for this trip and will almost certainly sell out on the night, so make sure you attend the AGM to get your space.
Please feel free to contact either Rob or I for any queries.
