ARM Annual Gathering and Retreat 20th – 27th September 2019
Sep 20 @ 3:00 pm – Sep 27 @ 12:00 pm
ARM Annual Gathering and Retreat 20th - 27th September 2019 @ Colwyn Bay | Wales | United Kingdom

£35 per night dinner, bed and breakfast (per person sharing twin room), £200 for the full week. (Concessionary rate for bunk in dormitory £15 dinner b & b.)

Join us for a day, a night, or a week at our annual gathering and discuss the midwifery issues of the day with like minded and supportive colleagues. People who have never been before or are coming on their own are more than welcome. Everybody takes a turn in preparing and clearing up after vegetarian meals. A great way to recharge those batteries.

A non refundable deposit of £35 is required to book, with the remainder due four weeks prior to 20th Sept. For single nights, £35 non refundable to book. (£15 rate for bunk bed in shared dormitory.)

The house at Colwyn Bay, Snowdonia, North Wales looks amazing and is in a wonderful location. You can be as sociable or otherwise as you please. We always organise some informal group walks, trips and other activities but it’s fine to do your own thing too. The bedrooms are all good sizes with twin beds or bunks.

The tickets link will take you to our shop where you can purchase tickets. However, before purchase please send an email to Linda Wylie at enquiries@midwifery.org.uk to confirm your booking and to explain which nights you would like to stay and if you want to share with anyone in particular. We can often accommodate babies and children but please check with Linda first. Can you also let Linda know about any accessibility requirements which we will do our best to accommodate (this will depend on the venue but we’ll help if we possibly can). Your receipt is proof of purchase, please save this as we don’t issue tickets. Linda will send you a confirmation email when all the details are finalised.

There are limited beds and we reserve the right to change or even cancel and refund bookings if we are over-booked (but we will do our best to avoid this of course).

We look forward to seeing you in Colwyn Bay.

Returns: The deposit of £35/£15 is non-refundable and books your place. Once you have paid for your full ticket this is non-refundable though you may exchange your ticket so please ensure you really want to come before you book.

Location

OLD COLWYN

Colwyn Bay 2 miles; Llandudno 5 miles; Conwy 6 miles.

Old Colwyn is a sleepy seaside town located to the east of the larger coastal resort of Colwyn Bay. A wide promenade winds along the sweeping bay from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn Bay, with access to a long coastal cycle track, three miles of safe sandy beaches and the pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea. Nearby attractions include the famous Welsh Mountain Zoo, Eirias Park with its fantastic indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, a number of local golf courses, and a selection of restaurants and pubs in both Old Colwyn and Colwyn Bay. Enjoy interesting day trips to Victorian Llandudno with its excellent shops, the picturesque medieval town of Conwy with its 13th Century castle, Bodnant Gardens and the stunning scenery of Snowdonia and Isle of Anglesey. In fact, Old Colwyn is a perfect location for touring all of North Wales.
