Please be advised that due to circumstances out of our control that we will not be using the Station Inn at Ribblehead for the event. We are now using the Dalesbridge www.dalesbridge.co.uk.
This will be the location for the evening celebration with the marquee, hog roast and live band Stillia
Everyone booked in for camping will now stay at Dalesbridge. People previously booked into the Station Inn and Station Inn Bunk Barns will now be staying at Dalesbridge. Breakfast will be provided by the SPF at Dalesbridge. You will need to make your own way to the start point at Horton
Bookings already confirmed for Gearstones Cottage and Gearstones Lodge will still be honoured. As these are a further distance away from the start of the walk and the evening entertainment there is a coach booked to pick you up at 0600 to take you to the start at Horton. Breakfast will be provided at Horton You will be bussed back to Gearstones at the end of the evenings entertainment.
If you are making your own way to the event please arrive in Horton in plenty of time for breakfast and registration.

Background. The SPF was informed 3 weeks ago that Alan Shutt the landlord of the Station Inn at Ribblehead had heart problems but we were reassured that this would not affect our event. On Wednesday afternoon the SPF received a phone call to say the Station Inn had pulled out their support for the whole event.
Challenge. In true Steve Prescott style the new challenge was taken up. Within 48 hours, using all contacts possible, the SPF has managed to come up with a solution that can accommodate all 260 people booked on to the event! Sincere and special thanks go out to Hope Construction, Warburtons Bakery, Cooks of Rainford, Nick Mussell, CMH, Exelby Foods of Hull, Duncan Matthews, Ian Pitts of the Imperial, and Andy Reid (World Beer Bus)Andy Reid and chef Rob Davies for offering their fantastic support at such short notice .
As a result we hope you will still join us as we are going to doubly celebrate the achievements of the Steve Prescott Foundation in our Million Pound Year.
Fund Raising. The new arrangements have incurred some extra costs so we hope you can secure sponsorship from friends and family as you tackle the arduos Yorkshire Three peaks challenge. For each individual who raises £120 there is a special edition SPF Hoody on offer. Every pound helps and is really appreciated.
Advice. We have been advised by several of our intrepid long distance walkers to buy Darn Tough socks to provide extra protection against blisters. These can be obtained from Urban Chameleon of St Helens: www.urbanchameleon.co.uk
Non Walkers. Please can you let me know if any of your party are not walking e.g. young children, volunteers
The SPF Trustees sincerely hope you will still support the event and complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
If for any reason you wish to cancel please let me know asap. If you aren't sure where you are staying please let me know.
Finally, we hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thank you for your continued support of the Steve Prescott Foundation. We wish you good luck with your challenge.
We will all be raising a glass and giving thanks to our inspiration Steve Prescott. #1Precky
