We stayed at a new venue this year, Hawes End Centre in Portinscale which was a great warm homely place to stay. Weather was mixed, Saturday breezy and drizzly, Sunday cold and sunny.
On Saturday some walked along the lake, 5 of us went up Cat Bells, Maiden moor, High Spy and back along the lake. Sunday a few walked up Cat Bells and others scaled Causey Pike,Sail,Eel Crag ridge and returning by Coledale Hause and High Moss all with beautiful views.
Saturday evening we had our Christmas Party, Frank did a splendid job of decorating the room and tables, members provided a great range of Starters and Sweets and Jane and Dave did a fantastic job of cooking the turkey and all the trimmings, brilliant night had by all.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all
