Some of our UK members who went to Barmouth for a walking weekend back in 2009 are meeting up again later this year for an informal get together for some walking and socialising.

There are lots of B and B's and guest houses in the town, a theatre, opera house, cafes and places to visit as well as lovely walking country in the Derbyshire area.

http://www.visitbuxton.co.uk/

We are planning to arrive either Thursday 31st August or Friday 1st September and check out on Sunday.

Hi everybody....and thanks to margaret for setting up the thread...the group email thingy wasn't working for me... don't know if was the BT mail programme or the android OS...anyways all good now...I have just booked 2 nights (friday and saturday) at the westminster hotel overlooking the pavilion gardens....

Was thinking of meal together on friday night and maybe traditional english afternoon tea for those who will be around in the afternoon
saturday a day of activity plenty of easy walks around buxton and for those you don't want to walk plenty of places to visit in and around the town
Sunday maybe a farewell sunday lunch

Please pitch in any ideas or suggestions...
and as we have mr philip liptrot our resident comedian in our company we will have no reason to be bothering with the official weekend comedy festival...ta ken

Anne & I sincerely wish we could join you. The Barmouth trip was one of the best of our lives, but the distance is too great. Hopefully we will see many of you in Hungary in September-plus there was this issue with Phil & Jean getting thrown out of our B & B!

Now,now Joe I know there is a lot of "fake news" around at the moment but I need to put the record straight . No doubt you have read Kens version of events on that fateful day in Barmouth when you refer to Jean and I being "thrown out " . I can assure you that was not the case after a "friendly" chat with the proprietors on the merits of running a successful B&B we left of our own volition !

sorry you can't make it to buxton joe...and don't worry about the misunderstanding about the exact circumstances of breakfastgate..it's a language thing.. 'leaving by one's own volition' is yorkshire speak for getting kicked out by the seat of your pants.....it's the same when a yorkshireman asks what are you drinking translated from yorkshire speak what he is really saying is 'i will have a pint of beer'... lovable rogues that they are...

and paula seeing as you are coming up north i can strongly recommend eggs yorkshire for breakfast..fried eggs nestled in a large yorkshire pudding...
