2015 Christmas Lunch

This year’s FOSCL Christmas Lunch will
be held at the Falcon Manor Hotel in
Settle on Saturday 5th December.

We're welcome at 12 noon, lunch will be served from 12.30.

The hotel is within walking distance of Settle
station – further information about it can
be found on their website:
www.falconmanor.co.uk.
This year, the speaker for the lunch will
be Nancy Edmondson who will recount her
experiences of growing up just after World
War 2 in the isolated Blea Moor cottages
on the S&C.
Holding the lunch in Settle allows us more
time at the hotel and we are therefore
hoping to arrange the speaker to talk to
us after lunch, before returning to Settle
station in time to meet trains returning
to Leeds and Carlisle. There may also be
scheduled bus services serving the local
area which stop at or near the hotel; and
there is plenty of room for parking at the
hotel.
Booking forms for the lunch can be
obtained by emailing pgmoorhouse@
gmail.com; or by phoning 07917 245844.
