Please also note…

  • The program will be relaxed until Friday evening when the main program will begin.
  • The facility we are using is rather rustic (no private bathrooms), with rooms for 1 to 4 people. Should you require a private bathroom you will need to find your own accommodation (see resources below). There is also the option to camp on the grounds.
  • Please note that we will all need to help with meal preparation and clean-up during the event as well as the general cleaning before departure on Sunday.
  • No pets are allowed at the centre.
  • Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis after payment.
  • If you wish to contribute to the support fund you may pay into the Weekend Away account (details above). There is no need to make the donation as a separate bank transfer. Please just transfer your total costs plus your contribution. Thank you!
