In order to ensure that I get the time off that I want, I have to book my annual leave well in advance. To that end, I have booked Monday 24th June to Friday 28th June 2019. All being well, I plan to be in Silverdale from Saturday 22nd June until Thursday 27th June. Hopefully anyone who wishes to be there for the mooted 'Annual Forumates LM Meet Up' can now plan accordingly. Don't forget your mealies...

I'm most likely going to stick with the Silverdale Hotel. That breakfast is the deal breaker. You can get up early, have a few hours at LM and then back for brekkie at 8am.

That's what I call early planning, never know what I'm doing next week let along next year lol I usually leave it later to book for the best deals and weather check ! but I'll bear those dates in mind for next year as it was so much fun getting together this time.

I have to be pretty quick when booking holidays. Don't think there's any deals to be done at the Silverdale Hotel, I just have to get a cheap train ticket. One does like to plan ahead lol
I'm free :)
In reply to James:
Ok, so Mr Humphries is joining us lol
This is kind of a bump, can't wait till next year so I am going on the 23rd for five days.
Thanks, Paul, we'll go ahead and book our 2019 volunteering holiday for after the LM meet-up. Then a bit nearer next June we'll book somewhere to stay near LM to coincide with the last few days of your week.
Be lovely to have Mr Humphries along--lol!

Just bumping this up for the attention of any Forumates who might like to join the group in the last week of June 2019 at RSPB Leighton Moss. Nearer the time we'll book 3 or 4 nights preceeding Friday the 28th of June in one of the hotels near LM (but we have now booked our holiday for afterwards in Wales to begin on the evening of the 28th). Will it be as hot then as it was this year?!
Just an update: I have now booked accommodation from Friday 21st June 2019 for one week ......so please don't change the dates LOL !! Looking forward to catching up with all that can make this forumate meet-up next June at Leighton Moss :)
