Hi Poppy, it was me who spoke to mum. I thought it was you who we were talking about but not sure mum knows your forum name!
I have given you a downstairs twin room. And I will check nearer the time what is in it. There is some rails and bits and pieces etc. But I did want to say thank you for being so considerate and for mum ringing me back offering to use another room.
There is no 'disabled access rooms' available at all. There are 4 rooms which are considered to be extra wheelchair friendly and more spacious with a few rails etc. There are numerous ground floor rooms so we should be able to accomodate most people.
I haven't checked out the mattresses yet but to be honest this is a fairly subjective issue anyway!
I am sure we can offer space for a splint swap, but you will need to look after/ man it yourselves, so if you want that then make the arrangements between you and we will find a place to accomodate you.
Poppy I am sure that people would love your cards and Carala your cakes would be a hit too. Again, Nick and I could find room but we wont be able to offer help to look after stalls etc because we will be busy with the agenda and attending some other meetings. So if people are happy and they think it could be beneficial then we will do our best to set you all up somewhere.
For those of you who are sending in booking forms with deposits from now on, I need to let you know we are away from the 1st June until the 9th June. During that time no residential bookings will be processed. For those of you who haven't received the newsletters and booking forms, it is likely that your membership has expired....so far the people who have contacted us were all expired members so please renew online and we will sort out memberships when we return on the 9th. There will be no one taking calls regarding the residential during this time.
Have a lovely Bank Holiday!
