I am not capable of independent travel. Also, my mother very often spends the weekends working all over the place so that would make it difficult for me to attend. Hope the rest of you have a lovely time, though. Smile

I'll have to look at the specifics. If you're meeting in ceremonial Lancashire it might be a goer but as I say I'm not sure. What do you want to see in Lancashire? Give us some ideas. Countryside? Ribble Valley, without a doubt. Pleasant towns? Wyre/Ribble Valley. Cities? I'd suggest Lancaster - it's a very historic city. Not very nice towns? Blackburn maybe. There's loads to see and do. Smile

Ok Paul ur the expert with places to visit being a devoted traveller and all! We definately want lots of space for the kids to scamper and something for the adults to get refreshments if u know what i mean! Wink

Will check out whats in Blackburn at some point this weekend but do let us know if u come up with anywhere.

Nice one mum2c, so pleased that date is fine with u Smile

I've never got pissed in Garstang but it seems a nice place for it. A lot of pubs there and it's not too busy. The main road through the town centre would pose a problem if your kids have the tendency to want to run into it though.

I like Waddington but it's a bit of a boring place. Three pubs and that's it. Mind you, it's nice to look round for half an hour.

There is Edisford Bridge near Clitheroe but the dog problem would pose difficulties for me.

Are you getting here by car? I was thinking you could go up Bowland or the fells for a bit and then go to a nearby town or village. Ribchester has a nice park for the children to run around on and there's a few pubs. Not a lot to do there though if you want something more.

Hang on... Garstang has that Millennium recreation ground. The town centre isn't five minutes' walk from there.

Garstang sounds ideal Paul, do u have a link for it? I will be getting the train to the destination, will have C with us so it will be better & quicker to travel by train rather than by coach.

For Garstang?

I don't know exactly what you're after and what you want to see so I can't really advise that well. It's not like Halifax though - quite relaxed and peaceful. If you like plenty of things to do you'll be a bit out of luck. It's an upmarket, sedate rural town.

Pictures of Garstang can be found here.

Oh... trains. I haven't really thought about that - you might only be able to get to the main towns like Preston and Blackburn. I don't know either of them very well at all.

Williamson Park's nice if you can get to it. That's in Lancaster.

Very nice indeed Paul, i found this:

Yep the first 2 are very ideal for the kids kebab and we want to cater for all, so lots of greenery and picnic areas are ideal. We will bring things to do also (badminton and volleyball travel set) and definately a football, T wont leave home without it! Smile
