!!! WAITING LIST ENTRY !!! - by completing the entry process from this time onwards you will be joining the waiting list. Should a place become available you will then be considered to have entered through the usual means by its terms and conditions; this will be done in order of entries received. If no space is available before Thursday 14th a full refund will be made after the event when I'm doing my admin. If a space becomes available on Thursday 14th or Friday 15th you have the right to refuse. This is so I'm not chasing people for payments to secure a place once one becomes available. ================================================================= Included in the entry is breakfast + trimmings at Lilliput Sea Scout hut on Poole Harbour & snacks at the Arrivée. Head out through Bath on easily navigated roads to Devizes, passing The Crammer where legend has it Wiltshire folk were caught by the Excisemen raking for 'the moon'. Continue down the Avon Valley through Salisbury and edging The New Forest, along the coast and around Poole Harbour, watching out for luxury Sunseekers this time! Pass through the chocolate box village of Milton Abbas and past the Abbey in the Dorset Hills and on. Into Somerset passing Glastonbury Tor and across The Levels to Axbridge. Then use The Strawberry Line railway path through the end of The Mendips passing orchards to stop at The Strawberry Line Cafe before returning to Bristol. Due to the success of the 2018 event entries will close early when capacity reached.
