Covid19 Update

I have recently found out Demesne farm camp site at Bellingham has just opened for camping but any bookings must be competed on line and paid in full and no day visitors are allowed. The site has introduced new rules which are part of the booking in procedure. Highlanning farm at Dent has been open all the time since we were at the site in March but I have not be able to speak to them and have had no reply to my email from early July. I Don,t know if anybody turned up in July for our camp. When we start to have our section meetings again I am hoping to keep to our list from the beginning of the year but this could be subject to change so please contact me for up to date information. if you are planning to attend.
