Whether or not you need a lift, please let the Ju Davenport (See WRG NW Contact Us) know that you're going, so that meals and accommodation can be organised in advance.

Transport to weekend digs can usually be arranged from Manchester, leaving on a Friday evening (often about 7:30 pm from Failsworth or City Centre). WRG transport is FREE.

The cost of food is usually £10 for a full weekend (2 Breakfast, 2 Lunches and 1 Evening Meal) or £2 for a single meal. Accommodation is FREE, but usually quite basic.

Please note that dates shown as Jan 1-2, say, signify a weekend camp with accommodation, whereas Jan 1/2 signifies two 1-day digs without accommodation.  If anyone needs accommodation for local (to Manchester) digs, this can usually be arranged - please let us know.
