AGM update: We have a new venue! The Bradford Midland Hotel is a beautiful Victorian railway hotel dating from1890.

Please email agm@newchaletclub.co.uk if you have previously booked but the change of location means that you now cannot come.

Note that the Midland is charging less for twin rooms, so the cost for sharing a room is now £230 while the charge for single rooms remains at £280.
