Cooking for Seathwaite Trip, 6th-11th January 2012

This is a page to organise food for the Seathwaite 2012 trip. Given people are arriving and leaving on different dates this is a bit more difficult to manage than weekend trips, but if people want to try to organise group meals this is the place to do so!

High House has a good kitchen, including multiple hobs, oven, microwaves, fridge, the usual crockery, cutlery and utensils, and an on-demand water heater. The club will provide usual supplies of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk (for cereal and drinks), sugar, biscuits, cooking oil and washing-up stuff.


On previous years we've often gone to the pub (the Scafell Hotel in Rosthwaite) one night. Saturday night might be a good choice given that will be when the bunkhouse is busiest (and cooking most problematic), however other suggestions are welcome.

Add your name below if you're keen for pub one night, along with any preference of day.

  • Matt, Saturday
  • Tom W, Saturday or Sunday
  • Andrew - Saturday
  • DP - Saturday
  • Greg - Any day, but let's say Saturday
  • Michael - Saturday
  • Ruth P - Saturday
  • Mark - any day
  • Rob - any day
  • Goody - any day
  • Tom A - Saturday
