2020 Holidays Update

Featured

Due to the current crisis all my holidays for 2020 have been either deferred to 2021 or cancelled.  Here is an update

Derbyshire Weekend – this holiday has been moved to 26th March 2021.  As this date was not feasible for everyone i now have rooms available on this break. Click on this link to view the flyer.

Battlefields Tour – this holiday has been moved to 5th of September 2021 and amazingly has remained at almost the same cost.  Once again the new date has clashed with other events for a few people so places are now available on this break.  Click on this link to view the flyer.

If you have an interest in either or both of these breaks please contact Jane Jones on 0151 526 2530

A socially distanced Ramble

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After over 100 days in lockdown the Rambling group finally managed to get out together today, and after all the lovely weather we have had, it absolutely poured down! Walking in groups of six, as per Government guidelines, we kept a social distance and covered the route  of the Warhorse Walk from Ormskirk to Lathom Chapel. After a quick drink break we continued along very muddy paths, across lush overgrown fields to the site of the old Burscough priory where we had a standing up lunch. Suitably refreshed we carried on through the countryside to Ruff Woods and back to the start point at Ormskirk station. 17 people walked and everyone was in a cheerful mood in spite of the weather, as it was good to get out together as a group in spite of the strange configuration we had to adopt. Hopefully this will be the restart of our walking programme but we are mindful that the rules are constantly changing and so will be keeping to local walks as much as possible for the foreseeable future. In spite of the rain it was good to see the gang back together, even if it was 2 metres apart!
