Julie has made a provisional booking for 2 afternoon sessions on Saturday 26th November, same day as the Christmas Dinner! Interested?

GCA02D8 9 Usual Suspects Visit Summit by 9 Usual Suspects D1/T5

Again we were very lucky with the weather, no sign of the forecast rain until we were all back at home, though we could have done without the wind!

We would like to Thank everyone who attended this event especially Dave for the ‘pop up’ cafe, we all appreciated a hot drink. I apologise for the route up, it was not the best! Again Thanks Dave for the easier route down. Hope to see everyone for our next adventure…….
