Annual Dinner.

The main event in the CCCC 50th Anniversary celebrations will be the Annual Dinner on Saturday 25 October, at The Royal Oak, Hurdlow in the Peak District.

We have their 34-bed camping barn booked for the nights of Friday 24 and Saturday 25th with space for overspill into the on-site campsite. You’ll be glad to know that the pub really knows their beer and the food is both generous and excellent!

As this is a big year for the club, we’re hoping for a good turn out. This is a great opportunity to encourage lapsed members to rejoin the club and join us in celebrating 50 years of adventures and camaraderie.
