Ambleside Meet 24th July to 1st July 2015
Many thanks to those members who have already expressed their intention to attend.
As the weeks are flying by it would be useful if you would confirm your wish to join us as soon as possible. We need to know numbers for catering purposes.
Here is some useful information to those of you who don’t know the area yet, and possibly interesting to those who regularly come to our meet here. Transport at this venue is not necessary, it is a short walk into the town centre and a bus service is available adjacent to the venue. It is only a short stroll to board the steamer for a trip on Lake Windermere. http://www.windermere-lakecruises.co.uk/cruises-fares

Tackle Scafell or Helvellyn, or take a Wainwrights’ Walk, but you may need to take his 7 volumes of “A pictorial guide to the Lakeland Fells” with you. If you’d rather have a guided walk then there are many to be found on the web.
Grasmere Gingerbread – A local delicacy may tickle your taste buds, and then why not visit the nearby garden centre for a coffee?
Another Lakeland sweet treat is at Cartmel, the home of the deliciously famous Sticky Toffee Pudding. http://www.cartmelvillageshop.co.uk Take some home for friends and family. Combine your trip to Cartmel with a visit to Holker Hall. http://www.holker-hall.co.uk
