    Does anyone need a lift from the Flitwick/Ampthill area? I'll be leaving around 7ish - probably going home around 11 as have to pick my son up from a party on the way home! If The Ship car park is full, can anyone recommend somewhere else to park nearby - is there street parking?

    Rosie would you be able to pick me up from kimble drive Bedford mk419sx x juliet

    November 19, 2014

    • Rosie

      Barry, I don't know Bedford very well. Was rather hoping to pick people up in Flitwick/Ampthill to share the journey, but can do Bedford pick ups. If you want to send a private email via meetup with your number, I may be able to get you too.

      Hi Rosie, no worries I can get there by several means, I was just being cheeky and scrounging a ride if you were passing my road to collect your friend. I will PM my number for you in case you need it later, look forward to meeting you and the rest of the crew, Barry

    Sadly I'm at a work conference all weekend so will miss out on the festivities. Shame as I was hoping to catch up with you all! Wishing you all a fabulous night and if I don't see you, a fantastic Christmas and New Year!! Helen (and Max, woof!) xx

    Ian, I popped into The Ship to check out the music in the Coach House and was not able to look. The bar man advised that there is an ipod/iphone headphone connection. So all those going please have some decent tunes on your phones !

    Unfortunately, long term illness is looking to stop me from having any early Christmas fun. It's taking far longer to get better than expected so I don't think I will make it now :-( I've got a room booked at the Travelodge on Goldington Road which I cannot get a refund on as it is a Saver Rate. It's a twin room (the second person cannot make it either) and I wasn't required to give the name of the other person at the time of booking. If anyone is interested in this, please let me know and I will send the confirmation email to you. I don't see why the second guest couldn't stay on their own without the named guest - I guess I will just have to make a call to the hotel to let them know. The room was £25 on a room only basis (Toby carvery buffet breakfast in the pub next door - details below in a previous post).

    No worries if no-one can take this, I will just have to suck up the cost myself.

    Sorry, unable to make this now but if I get back and Ship is still open I'll pop in.

    So I popped into speak with the Landlord earlier and they still have us in the diary! She was pretty relaxed about everything. We have the coach house from 7.30 thru 12 midnight (12 being the time they close). I have asked for bowls of nuts n crisps and asked they be kept topped up and we can play our own music ... those that have had the pleasure of travelling with me will know I only play the best tunes ... but all joking aside, I don't really! So if you have an iPhone, iPad then we can connect this to their music system and play our own stuff! Thanks Ian

    There may be a glimmer of hope for this, China trip up in air, should know soon.

      China trip still on. As Ian's post below, I'll be on a plane somewhere over Asia... Have fun guys.

    Hi Ian are you over on numbers already?

    November 3, 2014

    • Ian

      It's fine Barry, probably not have everyone there at the same time or hanging around in the same spot as they have seating also outside and with heaters :)

    As not been on many walks lately think it only fair the regulars attend this do.

    An update on the hotel situation.....I have booked into the Travelodge on Goldington Road (formerly Innkeeper's Lodge). The Travelodge is currently offering a non-refundable saver rate of £25 (£37 flexible rate) for a twin or double room. All-you-can-eat breakfast (including veggie option) next door in the Toby Carvery is £3.99 with unlimited tea/coffee for an additional £1.99 (lighter options of cereal, waffles or just toast are also available). A taxi to The Ship is looking to be around £5, probably a bit more on the way back depending on the time.

    If anyone else is planning or thinking about staying in a hotel, it would be great if we could all stay in the same place :-)

    I know it's a bit early to be planning properly for this but I will have to stay in a hotel in Bedford so I can have a glass (or three) of Christmas cheer :-) Can anyone more local than me recommend somewhere to book please?

      There are a couple of cheaper guest houses in De Parys Avenue (if you google them) not D'Parys Hotel as that is expensive now. There is a Premier Inn at Priory Marine and the Innkeepers Lodge at Goldington Road (attached to Toby Carvery). You would save on taxi fares if you chose guest houses in De Parys Avenue though. You also might want to check out The Castle Pub (just round corner from Ship) as they used to do accommodation and wouldn't be far to stagger at all!

      Hi Leigh, sadly were restricted to a max 50 persons at this venue and so I can get as many club members as possible along I decided to not allow guests at this time to give club members a chance to come along and enjoy an evening out with other members of the club ... maybe get your guest to join the club??

    I thought I'd go for something completely different ... so I've booked The Coach House, which can be found at the back of The Ship at the address above and here is a link below for further info on the venue:
