Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Hi Everyone

Following the success of past walking weekends I have been given the opportunity to organise the 2019 Walking Weekend in my home town in Yorkshire England. The event will take place on the weekend of Leonard’s birthday (Friday 20th Sept through to Monday 23rd Sept 2019 )

As is tradition participants from previous events were given the first chance to register and as expected there was a fantastic take up. However I can announce that there is a limited number of places available which will be on a first come first served basis. Once these places have been filled (by payment of the registration fee ) a waiting list will then be opened in case of any cancellations.

If any one is interested if they could contact me on email : I will forward them all the details of how to register, how to book the hotel and also a brief itinerary of the events.

Many thanks
Philip Liptrot /Yorkshire Lad

Hi Walkers
Just an update on the hotel ! Thanks to Henning it has come to my attention that the link for booking no longer applies as the hotel has left the QGroup . However this in no way affects the arrangement we have with them !
However anybody who wants to book going forward will have to do it by contacting the hotel directly either by phoning and asking for reservations on
01226 744700 (remember to make the nessessary changes to the code if ringing from Europe )
or by emailing Hope Farley at :
Many thanks
PS : I realise there is a long way to go before September but I think it best to mention that the room allocation for our event will be reduced 3 months prior to it taking place and will be taken off completely 1month prior to the event . This does not mean rooms won’t be available after this date but it does mean getting a room will not be guarnenteed
