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.
The YHA have written to me cancelling our hostel booking as they cannot open Slaidburn hostel this year with COVID 19 restrictions in place. I have asked the YHA to move our booking to 2021, so hopefully the hostel will be operating normally then.
Join us for pre Christmas festivities in Lancashire in the pretty Pennine village of Slaidburn in The Forest of Bowland. The price includes breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings, plus pre-dinner drinks on Saturday evening and a full Christmas dinner on the Saturday night.
Walks will be arranged for both Saturday and Sunday; there is plenty of attractive walking direct from the door of the hostel on the farmland and surrounding hills.
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.
