SLUGS EVENTS Autumn 2012


October 5th – 7th  Helwith Bridge, near Horton in Ribblesdale

Bring your mountain bike, or walk up Penyghent. Or both!

The theme for this weekend is £2.50 because that’s the price for the camp site. There’s a dinky little bunkhouse that sleeps four and also costs £2.50 per person, and there’s a real ale pub that does pie and peas for £2.50, all staggering distance from each other. Can’t be bad!!

John will coordinate a bike-ride on Saturday.

Contact John Boardman on 07775796270   The number for the bunk house is 01729 860220


November 3rd – 4th   Bonfire Party, Bell Busk, near Malham

Jeanne is happily remarried to Richard, and has been living in Bell Busk for several years. She’s keen to catch up with some old faces and is proposing a bonfire party and sleepover at their place.

Bring a firework, whatever you want to eat and drink, and a sleeping bag. There’s plenty of room inside and out. They’ll light the bonfire about 6.00pm

Contact Jeanne Hine on 01729 830117 or 07590 073151

Directions to the house, Granville House, Bell Busk
On A65 take turning to Bell Busk at Conistone Cold.  Drive 1 mile.
Turn right over stone bridge and immediately right again over 2nd stone bridge into Mark House Lane.

Granville House is about 300yards up on left. Our lane is a track but suitable for ordinary cars.
Sat nav and postcode will misdirect you
Think about parking /abandoning car as soon as over 2nd stone bridge. I shall ask the neighbours if they can lend me some parking, so would be good to have a show of hands.


December 1st -2nd Come to Clitheroe

Go biking (on or off the road depending on conditions), or walking, Pendle Hill or Forest of Bowland. All welcome at ours for a convivial evening of food and drink afterwards (contributions welcome) with some beds and floor space available.
