the Wetherspoons Foley Arms Hotel, Great Malvern – cost for 2 nights: from £145.35,
3 nights from £185.35 for a double room. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel.
There are a variety of other accommodation options in the area but we are planning
to have a group meal at Wetherspoons on the Saturday evening.
We are hoping to offer a short walk on Friday afternoon, with a longer walk on Saturday
and Sunday, but will plan for an earlier finish on the Sunday for those who wish
to return home. We will decide nearer the time about a planned walk on the Monday
for those staying over. Please let the organisers know if you are interested and
also, when you have booked accommodation, as it is helpful when planning the walks,
etc. If you would like more information about the weekend please do not hesitate
to get in touch with Anita or Val.
