Get thoroughly into the Christmas spirit with our Christmas meet in the Peak District!
This year to reflect our ever-increasing membership, we have hired out the entire YHA Hathersage hostel! This is perfectly poised for access to the brilliant climbing and stunning walks available in the Peaks; additionally a number of great climbing walls are available in neighbouring Sheffield if the weather is inclement. There will also be games, secret Santa and lots of festive cheer – this is the ideal way to get your Christmas season off to a great start!
YHA Hathersage (click here for details) sleeps up to 42 people: there are 17 beds in the main house and 25 within the annex. Within the main house there are two dorm rooms, both sleeping six; a single private room and one room that sleeps four; in the annex there are three six bed rooms, a four bed en-suite room and a two bed en-suite room which has disabled access and its own entrance. So plenty of space for some festive fun! Bed linen is provided.
Cost and food
This meet will cost you a mere £30 – which is excellent value as includes Christmas dinner on the Saturday night; you will not be disappointed! Meat lovers and vegetarians alike will be well catered for – please do state food preferences when signing up to the event.
Breakfast will be provided each day as usual in the form of porridge; there will be bread for toast as well, and tea and coffee will be provided. Please do bring sufficient food for lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
This is a round trip of ~420 miles, costing around £60 in petrol so we recommend buddying up for lifts and please remember to reimburse your driver!
