A few photos below from the weekend’s camp at Hope Valley, Derbyshire. It was regular attendee Stuart Regler’s 75th Birthday so Ian arranged for a rather nice cake, some fizz and the latest club t-shirt to be presented...

Looks like it was a lovely place. Shame I couldn't join you this time, i wanted to. But sunny and warm Cornwall beckoned - it was sunbathing weather!
