WALK HIGHLANDS MEET SPRING 2020

Sad but probably the correct decision. As I said on Facebook I'd suggest rather than refunding small amounts of money, (once you've made sure you're not out of pocket for the deposit of course) either donate the rest to the hostel or to the local Mountain Rescue team. Anything we can do to help small businesses and rescue services...

Yes, thanks to you and Malky for that. I'm going to do the same. I really do feel for these tiny hostel businesses. It doesn't seem possible that they can survive unless the government support is deployed immediately.

Hope it doesn't carry on until summer....

This could easily continue for 18 to 24 months.

Such a shame young Ak- had hoped to pop along for an evening. Absolutely the correct decision. TGO also just been cancelled, so thoughts with hostels, campsites, local businesses, etc.

Not that I could make it because of work still sad that the meets been cancelled but of course completely understand it is the right thing to do. Very sad for the hostel (which is a great place to stay), and the many others like it who will be in a similar situation.
