It is with a very sad heart and with much deliberation that we have decided that we must cancel 2020's Lammas camp. We have thought long and hard about doing this and believe that all of us in one field with limited sanitary facilities would be a disaster. Teamed with the fact that we are generally a very huggy community the temptation to break social distancing after a Lammas camp evening with friends we only get to see occasionally would be a be a real problem. We have put a lot of thought into this decision. Tickets will be honoured at next years camp or a refund will be given up until the end of June 2020, its up to you entirely. Take care and be safe people
On a happier note we are putting our minds to Lammas Camp 2021 and plan on making it even more special. Tickets are now on sale for Lammas Camp 2021 If you want to grab yourself the peace of mind that you have a space in the field download the form at the bottom of this page and send it in, either email or post and get a new ticket to give hope of brighter things to come next year. * * * * * * * * * * *
