    What an awesome weekend it was. A hugh thanks to Tania and Kieran who did a great job in keeping us all happy, entertained and save! Well done on organising your first weekend away, it couldn’t have been better! The weather was fab, fantastic views on our walks around the peak district (even though there was no water at the "famous” waterfall ;p) and Kieran even managed to show us the highlights of Manchester within an hour. The whole group was great fun and kept the spirit up! Hope to see you all soon again!!

    This weekend was incredible. We had the absolute best group. I laughed the entire way through - we had such a good time. Once again, Tania and Kieran did an outstanding job in organising this event. What makes it special is the enthusiam and passion for sharing the history of the places we visited. It will be hard to beat this weekend. I'll never forget it.
