Letter To The Editor

from an old friend John Stafford (to younger members he's the Stafford of the Stafford's Boulder Problem in Cuthbert's)

Dear Dave,

Have just returned from holiday in Torridon and Skye and felt that there may be members who would be interested to hear that new licensed premises have opened in a very strategic position for climbers and ridge walkers in the Black Coullin area.

'The Old Inn', Carbost, is run by Steve and Deidre Cooper supplying food, booze and B&B halfway Glenbrittle and Sligachan.

Officially it is a licensed restaurant but the purchase of a sandwich permits one to booze all evening. In actual fact some of the locals appear to have permanent personal sandwiches which are put out for them when they arrive and then cleared away for use again next evening.

For those who actually want food there is a selection of 'basket' meals prices which are reasonable for the area.

My firm is moving me to Kent next month so I hope to be on Mendip more often in the future than I have over the past few years.

Regards to all,

Yours aye,

John Stafford.

P.S. Is my 16 year old son eligible to apply for Junior Membership when we move south?  Yes, Ed. Looking forward to seeing you again.
