Windgather Cobweb Duster and Hot Pot Photo comp

Chris K


Windgather Cobweb Buster, President’s Hot Pot & Photographic Competition

The Hotpot this year is on Sunday 24th March, please join us either climbing at Windgather with Chris Kastavunis, on a walk (walk leader needed as I'll be dithering my way up my first outdoor climb for ages!) and then for the Hotpot and Photo competition later on.  This will be a really nice opportunity to enjoy memories from last year and the winter, and get outdoors on the rock for (for me anyway!) to start the climbing season.

This year the Hotpot is at the Navigation Inn at Buxworth - not far off the A6 so ideally sited to drop in on the way back to Manchester from Windgather.  Food will be served at about 6.30pm, but we are welcome to turn up earlier and have a drink and a chat in their function room.  Please note it won't be possible to order different food (as we used to at the Globe - you could try booking in advance but they are busy on Sundays).

Please note the function room is used for their carvery on Sundays - they will be finishing this and then setting up for us, but we are welcome to chat in a quiet area of the function room.  

The menu is a vegan hotpot with bread, then apple crumble and custard for a very reasonable £12.
