6th Hillwalkers’ Register Weekend Meet and Annual Dinner
Friday 30 September - Sunday 02 October 2011 

The venue for the 6th Hillwalkersʼ Register Weekend Meet is Helvellyn Youth Hostel in the Lake District. The hostel is situated 900 feet up into the Helvellyn range and commands outstanding views towards Ullswater lake.

The package for the weekend is £59.50 per person that includes two nights bed & breakfast and a three course meal on Saturday evening (I have opted for a menu which is substantial in both choice and portions!). The price also includes tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the weekend. Payment is required at the time of booking and refunds (less £5) will only be made if the cancelled place is filled. A deposit is required by the hostel by 31 March 2011 so an early response would be appreciated.

This is a great social weekend to meet like-minded people. As in previous years, there will be led walks on both Saturday and Sunday (details will be available on the Friday). Participants are welcome to join any of these walks but are also free to make their own arrangements. The guest speaker on Saturday evening will be John Nuttall, writer, photographer and artist specialising in the mountains of England and Wales who has most kindly agreed to give an entertaining illustrated talk entitled ʻWhy Climb Mountainsʼ.

The 60 bed hostel is fortunate to have many small rooms for two to four people. The five rooms with two beds will be allocated to couples on a first-come, first-served basis if requested. There is an opportunity to achieve sole occupancy of the hostel subject to the numbers as at 31 March 2011. After this date, the hostel will accept bookings from members and, therefore, places will be subject to availability.

The hostel is licensed and serves a range of local ales from Hesketh Newmarket. Parking is available and full details of how to get there will be emailed when individual bookings are confirmed.

In the event of any queries, please contact Andrew West (details below).
