Rick has booked Makins for the Saturday following the Glebe 3 dayer however we cannot get enough rooms at the Longshoot (I can only get rooms for 6 people so I am going to cancel them) so I was challenged to find somewhere else local.
Well the Travelodge Nuneaton called the Yeoman Harvester CV11 6EN is on the same road as the Longshoot and about a 10minute walk or 2min taxi ride away. Rick and Keith have stayed there before and you can then either eat at the Harvester onsite or go to the Longshoot Cavery at the extortionate £4odd each.
The only issue is you need to book your own rooms as its much cheaper to get a no cancellation room and they are paid for at the time unlike the Longshoot which I usually reserve and we just pay on the day. So if you sort out who you are sharing with and book with Travelodge on-line it's £29 for a double room, you request a pull out bed to be made up on-line and its then a twin for only £14.50 each. For breakfast you just go to the Longshoot or the onsite Harvester and pay there.
Here's the link http://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/163/Nuneaton-hotel?gclid=CLWfq4CFor8CFSoCwwod_48A3g
By phone its 0871 984 6094 but they charge you a £2.50 booking fee!!!!
Remember to only book the Travelodge Nuneaton........do not book Travelodge Nuneaton Bedworth as that's the wrong place!!
It looks like a fair few aren't going to fish the Sat now so please let Rick or Keith know either way if you are fishing saturday or not as Rick may need to adjust the lakes booked. Additional costs for fishing Sat will now be just £15 as you will be booking and paying for your own room on the Fri night.
Here's those I know about, everyone else please let Rick and Keith know asap either way: -
- Not staying and not fishing Saturday = Jeff, Rob D, Steve B, Robbo, Ian S, H, Mick Flan
- Booking their own rooms and fishing Saturday = Billy, Alec, Barry, Rick, Keith, Dougie, Pete C, Ian L, Dave Grimes
