We are holding a national gathering in the Southwest of England this spring and would love you to join us! It will be held near Dartmoor National Park with plenty of activities including Saturday day trips and a big Sunday meeting. There are good rail connections close to the Youth Hostel Bracken Tor and there is the chance of holding a Ceilidh ( [kay-lee] a traditional dance – lots of fun for everyone! We need to have at least 60 attendees to make this viable. Do get in touch if you are interested in attending - accommodation will be allocated on a ‘first-come, first served’ basis.

If you have any questions, please contact Rachael Clayburn (Travel Secretary):
