Weekend away - walking and sightseeing- Swanage, Dorset

*************14 March  Update *******

After the success of the walking weekend in September I'm organising a weekend away to Swanage Youth Hostel in Dorset to enjoy the fantastic jurassic coastline, beaches and cream teas and maybe a drop of cider too.

Friday 11.00am - taking the day off work....

Meet at Sainsburys Ferndown, 597 Ringwood RdFerndown, Dorset BH22 9AL for 11 am. or at Youth Hostel at 1pm.

Have a light lunch going on to a walk in the afternoon assuming it will be sunny before an evening meal at the hostel if we like the menu or elsewhere .....

Saturday will be a full days walk probably 8 miles to suit everyone with a apcked lunch .... and an evening meal in one of Swanage's many hostelries....

Sunday morning walk going on to lunch at the New Inn Church Knowle.

Leave 4pm making way back home.

Accommodation

So far it's all ladies that have shown interest and I have reserved 2 x dorms of 6 for ladies, are there any men brave enough to join us ? come on don't be shy, we don't bite!

Transport

I am willing to drive and can take 3 people but I will need 2 more volunteers to drive too. If there aren't any volunteers then the other option is to catch the train/ bus and meet at the hostel-just an idea .....

+_+_+_+Payment_+_+_+_+

Each night is approx £26.00 pp I do need £25.00 deposit to confirm your booking and I will email you in the new year when to pay the balance, the YHA haven't yet made the annual increase in fees so unable to give exact price as yet.

Please can you pay me or Derek £50.00 cash or £52.18 by Pay Pal asap to confirm your booking , thank you.

What do I need to take ?

Walking boots- waterproofs- sandals - suncream and change of clothes in case it rains....

Breakfast for 2 days and tea/ coffee supplies

Sense of humour !

Have I forgotten anything......

 

Many thanks Jo.

    Hi Mark, please can you confirm if you are coming this weekend and taking Helen and Linda please? If you are not able to make it please let me know ASAP. Beth do you have space for 2 please? if not can you take Helen and I'll take Linda as it will be a squeeze with 3 in the back and Linda is the more petite.
    I hope to hear from you soon Mark, thanks.

    April 24, 2013

    • Beth E.

      Have made arrangements with Julie and Helen to provide them with transport down there :)

      April 25, 2013

    • Jo H

      I've spoken to Linda and picking her up now. See you 11 ish at Sainsburys. Have to leave by 11.20 to keep to timings...

      April 25, 2013

  • Julie G.

    I cant find any email Jo! Anyway Beth can you ring or text me to confirm time of departure and is Linda sharing with us following our discussions.

    April 22, 2013

    • linda

      What discussions are these Julie? As far as I am aware I am sharing with Mark.

      April 22, 2013

    • Jo H

      Julie, I have just copied and pasted the email to you. Do you receive email invites for walks/socials etc? if you do then its the same email address. If youve changed email address please update your account.

      April 22, 2013

  • Jo H

    Hi Julie, please check your spam as Ive received it and so have others.
    PS please bring your own towels too, thanks Debbie for asking!

    April 22, 2013

  • Jo H

    I've sent all my fellow walkers an email, please read it as its for everyone. See you all Friday, thanks Jo.

    April 21, 2013

  • Jo H

    Hi all, if you could make the pub night on Wed 17 April that would be good as I have a couple of points to discuss- walks and meal options ideas and lift shares. Thanks.

    March 31, 2013

    • Beth E.

      I work on Wednesday evenings Jo, so unable to come, but would be happy to provide a lift to two others (from my house - so they can leave cars there if necessary) and I was thinking of looking up some walks in the area (unless you already have plenty?).

      April 1, 2013

    • Jo H

      I have a few walks but you can always bring some more, i think the lifts are sorted - its just you and Julie in your car.

      April 4, 2013

  • Jo H

    Ali W is also coming.

    April 4, 2013

  • Beth E.

    I am happy to drive and share petrol costs with those wanting/needing a lift, have room for 3 passengers (in my big Mini), but would probably find it more comfortable with 2 to allow for luggage space. I live very close to the P&R at Redbridge, and could depart from my house to make things easier. Julie G, if you still need a lift I'd be happy to and that leaves one (or two) spaces to fill.

    March 2, 2013

  • Jo H

    Mark is offering to take 3 people from the Park and ride.

    February 18, 2013

  • helen

    I would like a lift share if one is still available. I too can be at the Redbridge Park & Ride. Thanks

    February 18, 2013

  • Jo H

    If you are paying the balance by Pay pal please go to the event I've set up as it appears you can't use the link on this weekend event. If you click on the calendar on the left hand side and go to the 26 April and you will see ive set up another event to pay this, any queries please ask, thanks.

    February 18, 2013

  • linda

    I would like a car share place if possible please. I can be picked up at Redbridge park & ride. Thanks.

  • Jo H

    Hi All, I'm very pleased to say the final balance is only £25.00. If you pay me/Derek in cash its only £25 but if you pay by pay pal it's £26.09 to include the transaction fee. Please can you pay by 10 March or else you will lose your place. You are respsonsible for making your own way to Swanage. I know Mark, Matt and myself can offer lifts. If you can offer anyone a lift please put where and what time you can pick anyone up and if you would like a lift again please put where you can be picked up from and what time etc. Please also note its a full day on Sunday so we could be leaving approx 5pm if the weather is good etc. I am hoping we can meet at Redbridge park and ride and follow if possible. Look forward to seeing you all soon. Many thanks Jo.
