    Glad to announce the return of the CMC Christmas Weekend. Some dates for your diary 2-4 December
    Venue – The Kingsway Centre, Middleton in Teasdale

    For anyone who has not attended a Christmas weekend away before, we share an outdoor centre with dorm accommodation. In usual CMC style we do “our thing” during the day, then on Saturday evening eat too much with a 3 course self catered meal, make merriment, share banter and possibly pursue other optional indoor entertainment.
    The location lends itself to some varied walking/running on the doorstep . Great area also for some quiet lane cycling with plenty of hills to burst your lungs on! If you just need a chill weekend then this is also a great location to do so. Middleton is a pretty, quiet village that has a pub or two that serve food, general store and some arty gift shops as well.

    Cost is around £55 per person for the whole weekend (Saturday evening meal included). However further emails will confirm the actual amount. If you intend to stay in a camper van on site then the price is the same. We may also require a deposit for each person.

    If you would like to secure a place, please email directly me at
    Please avoid WhatsApp, Messenger etc as too many channels become a nightmare to track.

    Thanks Ali

    Important information
    Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend.
    Please note the following in preparation for M in T.
    1. The centre is not open on Friday until late afternoon. We have been requested not to arrive or park before 5.30 pm..
    2. The car park is not large. Please keep the number of camper vans to a minimum if possible and park according to signs.
    3. All bedding in the centre is provided. You may wish to bring your own pillow and/or slip if that is what gives you zzzzz….
    4. Please do a lateral flow test before you arrive and only attend if negative.
    5. Payment. Still juggling numbers and costs. Final cost for accommodation to be announced this weekend. Please pay on-line direct to CMC account.
    6. Further payment for the meal is to be paid in cash, as this has come out of chefs’ pockets. So bring some change and notes. Plenty of advance notice here!

    Murmurings of road bike routes being organised.
    Any mountain bikers coming and offering to lead a route?
    Walks aplenty in the area.

    Any Q’s please contact direct to me please.

    Sorry folks, I have miscalculated as I forgot to include the deposit in total figure.

    Amount due per person is £54.

    I’ m hoping that no one has already paid but if you have please make a second payment of £6 per person.

    Apologies again
