27th - 28th April — WEEKEND TASK — Borrowdale, Northern Lakes

We are returning to the Northern Lakes for our Spring weekend task. Work here is as varied as the landscape, from woodland maintenance to fellside footpath work. Neil is the contact for the weekend. There is the possibility of making a group booking at Derwentwater Independent Hostel (under 1½ miles from the Bowe Barn Ranger base). It wouldn’t be exclusive use, but would enable those who would like to stay there together to do so. Could anyone who is interested in this option (no firm commitment needed at this stage) please let Neil know by the Brimham task on 16th Dec; if there is enough interest, he will pursue it further. Plenty of other accommodation is available in Keswick if you would prefer.

To put your name down for the task for either or both days, to book a place for the Saturday meal, or to register interest in the hostel option, please contact Neil.

Next programme is due out in March 2019.
