The lakes weekend is going ahead. Myself, Jenny, Nathan, Charley and Dan have names down so far. The bunkhouse at Gillside Farm, Glenridding (postcode CA11 0QQ) is booked and we have the larger 12 bunk room. The other 7 man room is being used by another group. Cost is £15 per person per night.
The weather forecast so far is reasonable although not conclusive and may prove to be good enough for climbing on both days but taking gear for scrambling and walking too.
Facilities at the bunkhouse include gas stove, wash up area, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle but no pots, pans, crockery or cutlery. Toilet block for the campsite has showers too and cost 20p. The Travellers Rest pub is a 5 minute walk down the road and it is recommended for food and beer. Glenridding has shops and other places to eat and drink.
The bunkhouse has to be vacated by 10:30 on Sunday morning but cars can be left at the campsite until later in the day if required.
If anyone else would like to come along for all or any part of the weekend please get in touch. At the moment there is room in the bunkhouse for 7 more on Friday and Saturday night. I’ll be at the AGM tonight if anyone wants to discuss further.
