Covid-19 - getting back outdoors
All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.
Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.
Stop Press: this weekend is now fully booked, but members can see other options in the "members only" section below.
Join us for a weekend of walking, staying at a hostel in Buttermere.
Early booking is recommended it you want to reserve a place. Booking is easy using the booking option on this page of the website. The cost for a bed in a four bedded room is £66 for the two nights or £60 if you are happy to take a bed in a male only dorm room.
There will be a longish walk on the Saturday, and we all expect to eat together at the hostel or the local pub in the evening. A shorter walk will be arranged for the Sunday allowing a finish by mid-afternoon for those who have to travel.
There is cooking equipment and bedding is provided, but you will need to bring your own towel. The four bedded rooms are not pre-allocated single sex rooms, so please be aware that men and women may need to share.
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.
