What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Some of you will remember Owain Bristow, an inspirational walk leader for Aberdeen Young Walkers and all round decent human being. His family have been in touch and asked us to pass on the following information with regards to his memorial:
We're holding the memorial on Saturday 14th August, starting 2pm, at Wooler Youth Hostel, 30 Cheviot Street, Wooler, Northumberland, NE71 6LW. Followed by tea and cake, so it'll finish about 4-5pm.
It'll be informal and secular, with various friends and family speaking, anyone who wants to. If you'd like to say a few words then just let me know so I can draw up an order of service.
We have the hostel for the whole weekend, so there's free accommodation and food on Friday and Saturday nights for anyone who wants it. If you'd like to stay, let me know which night(s) and any dietary requirements.
There's a small car park at the hostel, and more free parking down the road in Wooler town. The nearest railway station is Berwick-upon-Tweed, and we can arrange lifts for anyone who needs them. The place doesn't have any particular connection to Owain, it's just a nice-looking available space that's equally (in)convenient for everyone to get to! It's right next to the Cheviot Hills, as the name suggests, so if anyone is thinking of planning a walk on the Sunday there are some good options.
I'll post it on Owain's Facebook in the next couple of days, but please do spread the word to anyone you know who might want to come.
I'm also hoping to have it videoed, maybe live streamed, for those who can't attend.
Hope to see you then and all the best,
If you would like to attend, please contact the family directly if you have their contact details. Alternatively, I'm happy to relay any messages and pass on your contact details.
