  • Sonia

    The map's a bit off. The post code is BA2 6JZ - Bathwick Hill (that's if we're staying at the YHA rather than the YMCA)

    October 17, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Jo Would you like me to ring Demuth's and book for four people? If so, what time? (Am still clogged up!)

    October 1, 2013

    • Jo H

    • marie p.

      October 3, 2013

  • Jo H

    demuths can only book for up to 6 people on Sat. so i could book for 6 then someone else make a bkg for 2 ?

    October 1, 2013

    • Sonia

      Or you could book for 4 people, and the other person for 4 people

      October 1, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Great - Demuths for lunch Saturday. Jo are you booking it or do you want someone else to?

      October 1, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Can we make Demuth's Saturday lunchtime please? Then we know we'll all be there, no casualties with trains and so on. Thanks

    September 30, 2013

    • Jo H

      October 1, 2013

  • marie p.

    October 1, 2013

    • Jo H

    September 30, 2013

  • Jo H

    Ladies, new plan then... just wrote an essay and didn't save it so here is short version...

    Fri , have a sandwich somewhere then spa . Sat walk then d'mths for lunch ? 1.30pm? Sorry , I can only afford lunch @13.00not evening meal @28.00 and poss others too. Maybe have a vote ? think we should stay together thou.

    Sunday - morning walk then we say good bye . Sonia n sue have lunch at bath .
    me marie etc - we stop en route to devizes for lunch and see the 16 locks as car drivers need to be on east side of bath to make way back home...

    So book tickets for 3pm? what do u think ?

    September 29, 2013

    • Sue B.

      I'm thinking of getting 17:13. Might go to Claverton American Museum and see quilts on Sunday pm after roast lunch....... Waiting to hear from Sonia about train times

      September 29, 2013

    • Jo H

      Prob 5 is more realistic actually ! We will have sat pm to look around too x

      September 29, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Jo Really looking forward to weekend. Could you fill Sonia and me in on Sunday? We're on the train and need to book our tickets soon. So let us know what might be planned so we can sort our tickets. Thanks.
    Hope the cold is better - someone has filled my sinuses with concrete - I haven't had one as bad as this for a v long time :(

    September 29, 2013

    • Jo H

      September 29, 2013

    • Sue B.

      Chesteze works wonders on cough. Still steaming my sinuses in attempt to shift concrete......

      September 29, 2013

  • Sonia

    Sue and I are hoping to go to Demuths (Gourmet Vegetarian restaurant) one evening - http://www.acornvegetariankitchen.co.uk/about/introduction/ - who else would like to come? We will have to book in advance.

    September 29, 2013

    • Sonia

      Joe,

      September 29, 2013

    • Sonia

      Won't that make it a bit of a rush? If we are going for lunch rather than supper, why don't we go on Saturday? Yes to the SPA.

      September 29, 2013

  • Sonia

    Did you find out where the nearest train station was on Sunday after the walk? As I would like to book my tickets (they're cheaper in advance).

    September 29, 2013

    • Jo H

      yes I brought my maps in to the pub but you and Sue had gone.

      September 29, 2013

    • Jo H

      marie in a 2 seater car and me in my 5 seater car =7 bods so we don't have space for 1 more to take anywhere.... so was going to look for another walk but to ill at the mo to think about it. unless we do another walk from the hostel..

      September 29, 2013

    August 31, 2013

  • Sonia

    August 31, 2013

  • Sonia

    Have paid via Paypal (less fee as I have a paypal account)

    August 28, 2013

    • Jo H

      Hi Sonia, i'll check with Derek how much we receive as far as im aware you have to pay the fees - i have a paypal account too and i get charged!

      August 27, 2013

  • Sonia

    As it's a youth hostel - do we have to bring sleeping bags?

    August 24, 2013

    • Sonia

      I should be able to get Friday off - though one hour wait is not too long when you have company

      August 24, 2013

    • Jo H

      Ive spoken to marie - she has fri off and willing to take u in her sports car!

      August 24, 2013

  • Sonia

    I need to check if the local Cat sitter can look after my trio, I should be able to confirm and pay on Tuesday 27th. I would be up for the Spa. Also there is a very good vegaterian resturant Acorn@Demuths that I won't mind trying if we get the chance.

    August 24, 2013

  • Lyndon

    hi, , is the stay in a hotel?, sigle room?
    thanks

    August 15, 2013

    • Derek

      Hi Lyndon, I think the answer is near the top of the event description, youth hostel and dorms. Unlikely to find single rooms in Bath for this much / little.

      August 15, 2013

    • Jo H

      I had it on there already but have just made it clearer to understand!
