Each year the group has a holiday in
Britain in the Spring. The advantage of group
holidays, apart from walking with friends, is that we
gain a small group discount on cost, and some evening
activities such as a quiz, board or paper games, or local
events are arranged. We may have around twenty five
people in a party, and in recent years, have been away
from Sunday to Friday.
We travel by coach, picking up at
Gants Hill, and Hawkey Hall, at Woodford Green, although
members are free to make their own way to the holiday.
We aim to arrive in mid-afternoon, giving time to
explore our surroundings and accommodation to get our
bearings before dinner.
Recently the group has chosen
other areas of the country not covered by HF for the
Spring holiday. The 2010 holiday used a hotel in Weymouth
as a base to explore the Jurassic Coast and Portland, and
for 2011, Shropshire was visited. In 2013 we went to
Derbyshire to the Malverns in 2014, the Forest of Dean in
2015, and Sidmouth in 2016. Full day walks, or shorter
strolls with sightseeing are offered, described in
advance with distance and amount of climbing involved,
and chosen before setting off in the coach to the start.
There is also some flexibility for planning a personal
day out, provided the leaders are aware of your plans and
transport, for safety.
HF houses offer full board,
selecting our own packed lunch contents each morning.
Hotels are close to shops making for easy organisation of
lunches, and accommodation is half board with en-suite
rooms.often also offering a swimming pool, pool table
