Hi-5's Go to the LAKE DISTRICT

Ali has organised a trip to the Lake District, 10 rooms have provisionally been booked for a hotel (Riverside Hotel) in Kendal for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) at a cost of 276 for the two nights including breakfast. As we have decided it would be prudent to leave on the Thursday and cover most of the drive down south on that day Ali has also provisionally booked 10 rooms in the Holiday Inn in Dumfries @ 76 per room including breakfast.

Once again a big thanks to Ali and Mandy for a great weekend and the Hardnott pass will be a talking point for some time to come. The company that's on the trip was just great, a close encounter when we left Kendall was scary and hair dryers choice of word could have been true but thank god they weren't so every one got to their destination safe and well once again a big thank you one and all most enjoyable
