“Due to unforeseen circumstances” we won’t be able to join you for the Christmas meet up. We hope to rise, like a pair of Pheonix, at some point in 2019. Spring?
Best wishes to everyone for Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Hi to those members proposing to attend this gathering.
Within the attachment is a menu pre order which would seem to include an offer of a free bottle of Prosecco per table of four if the pre orders and £5 per head deposit are received before the 1st November at the venue.
To date no deposits have been requested for the pitches but there has been a request for registration numbers plus arrival and departure dates which will assist the venue in allocating pitches. As a reminder, all pitches include electric.
Accordingly, it would be helpful if members could print and complete the attached menu pre order and post it with a £5 per head deposit, plus a note of your registration number and arrival / departure dates to:
Mrs Christine Lawson, 3, The Village Green, Sinderby, Thirsk, North Yorkshire. YO7 4HY.
Please make your cheque payable to
Independent Association of Hobbyists
and ensure that it arrives with Christine on or before Tuesday 30th October. (This month)
P.S. The date of the meal is definitely Saturday 8th December. The time is yet to be agreed but I am guessing it will be early evening.

Our pre-Christmas Meet will for this the second time, take place at the Grouse and Claret Hotel and Caravan Park, Rowsley, Derbyshire.
Those of you who attended in December 2016 will remember we had a great time and that the hotel was an ideal place to gather for a natter in the evenings.
The management are very happy to see us again and have stated that the Christmas Fayre meal will be a similar menu and price to 2016, the finer detail of which will be decided by the brewery Marstons, late July.
Provisional booking of 20 or their total 21 pitches has been confirmed. The camping fee this year will be:
£120.00 per pitch for 7 nights
£110.00 ” ” ” 6 nights
£100.00 ” ” ” 5 nights
Short stays of less than 4 nights will be the normal price of £22.00 Sunday to Thursday and £25.00 Friday and Saturday. This does include electric hookup.
As it will be very near to Christmas, the proximity to Matlock, Buxton and Bakewell provides plenty of retail therapy to all you frantic Christmas shoppers, but of course the Peak Village retail outlet is only a short stroll across the hotel car park. How convenient is that ???
A public walkway nearby provides a lovely route into Matlock be it on foot or bike, about 6 miles, but the bus route goes straight past the hotel, so don’t worry about the return journey. There are regular bus services to many other destinations.
Although we are still in the early stages of 2018 it will be so helpful to have some indication of your interest in the festive fun this December.
It is not necessary to contact the venue, simply post here on the forum within this topic so that I can keep abreast of numbers.
