‘Simple Christmas’ gathering

Spend a no-pressure Christmas in good company

This year, Airton Friends invite you to a quiet gathering between 24th & 28th December.  This relaxed, informal retreat is a chance to enjoy the season in company with shared meals, facilitated activities and walks.  Malhamdale is beautiful at any time of year and the Christmas week is a perfect time to experience the wonders of its scenery and tranquillity.

The programme for the gathering is entirely optional and there will be plenty of space and opportunity to spend time in personal creative or reflective activities.  There will be an opportunity to explore the area more widely including visits to other historic Quaker meeting houses.  We will be sharing food preparation and meals -(all vegetarian, with other dietary requirements catered for) and there will be opportunities to participate in short silent gatherings each day.

Accommodation is in the form of a shared mixed dormitory with six beds.

The cost of the gathering is £137 per person including four nights’ accommodation and all meals from the evening of 24th December to breakfast on 28th.  Participants are asked to arrive by late afternoon on 24th and assistance can be given with connections from local stations for those travelling by train.

If you would like to know more about the gathering, contact us here, including ‘Simple Christmas’ in your message.  Places are limited so booking at the earliest opportunity is recommended.
