Xmas Bash 2019: Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk Coast
6th - 8th December

Located in this picturesque North Norfolk fishing town, we once again have a whole hostel (28 beds) to ourselves for our Christmas event; so please contact Allan as soon possible to secure your place. This is a fully self catering hostel with parking for 11 cars onsite. It is also only a short walk from numerous pubs, tea-rooms, cafes and restaurants.

Only a short distance distance away can be found wonderful wildlife, winding waymarked trails, serene salt marshes and a sweeping stretch of sandy beach. Ideal for walking, cycling or relaxing on the 4 mile long Holkham beach, one of the most beautiful, unspoiled stretches of sand in the UK. For those who fancy a ride on a steam train, the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway is also nearby.

UPDATE: The meal will be held at The Globe PH at a cost of £24.95 per person. Total cost of £90 due by October 2nd remains unchanged. Please check with Al if there are spaces then a £10 deposit will secure it for you.
A shortened version of the menu is set below and a pdf of the full version is being sent to you in a Christmas Update email. The menu may change slightly before the event but probably only an additional vegetarian option. Please let Al have your menu choices as soon as you can and by October 16th at the latest.

As usual Boh will organise a less strenuous walk if required.

£90 cost includes the meal.
See you all there
