    Had a great time, I don't think I would enjoy hiking around London after climbing Snowdon. Thanks Geoff and Etiennette for organizing the weekend, was awesome, even the pasta bake and the jokes we made of it

    • Geoff

      Climbing Snowdon in icy winds can be a challenge but a large portion of pasta bake can be even more challenging!!! ;-)

      Hi Helene, I would be going from Birmingham - would you still have a space in your car please? Thanks!

    Zip Wire people..

    ZIP world people have decided to reduce the group sizes to 12 per time slot (previously) 20. They took this choice last night as it was taking too long to process everyone and people were getting cold at the top......

    This means unless people have booked a slot for 10am on Sunday 5th May you will have sadly missed the chance to join this mini activity at this specific date/time. No spaces exist for the next time slot at 11am either.... but other times and days do have availability over the weekend so check the http://www.zipworld.co.uk but you will need to co-ordinate transport and times with others that are interested.

    Hi,
    I'll be doing the zip wire activity on SUNDAY 5 MAY and I'll be driving (with 6 car seats available). Let me know if you want a lift to the Zip Wire site for the 10am session.
    But you will need to book it direct with the site asap as its filling up.
    Book via http://www.zipworld.co.uk/
    Regards
    Mike

      Chloe, Yes you have a seat. As for the cost, it will be split between all in the car, so far 6 of us so it will not be that much.

      April 5, 2013

    • Mike H

      So far in the car we have 1. Mike H (Me), 2. Asha, 3. Brett, 4. Marie W. 5. Thaik. 6. Chloe. So one seat up for grabs if anyone dare to join us on the zip wire..
