WILD FLOWER SOCIETY AGM AND MEMBERS’ WEEKEND 2024
Our 2024 members’ weekend and AGM will be 7-9th September at Old Hunstanton, Norfolk. (Branch Secretaries’ Meeting on Friday 6th September)
Early information about accommodation options, posted November 2023.
The AGM is due to be held at the village hall in Old Hunstanton on the North Norfolk coast over the weekend of 7th– 9th September 2024. This is a very popular holiday area and accommodation gets booked up early. However, there is a wide range of accommodation along this part of the Norfolk coast from camping and caravan sites to luxury hotels. If you want to stay for longer there is a big market in holiday cottages. However, it is not cheap and we strongly recommend booking early.
One option we have found is at Manor Park Holiday Park, Hunstanton, PE36 5AZ (Parkdean Resorts). They offer static caravans and chalets for rent from Friday night through to
Monday morning, which covers the period of the AGM meetings. The chalets are very reasonably priced (bedding provided, need to take towels) at £219 or £229 for the three nights. As far as I can see the cheaper priced chalets (called Shelduck chalet) do not offer an oven, whereas the slightly more expensive option (called Bullfinch chalet) does. Each chalet contains one double and one twin bedded room, neither of which is particularly spacious, together with a bathroom and open-plan kitchen/lounge. They have a feel of ‘Hi-de-Hi’ about them, basic but functional but at just over £200 for 3 nights for potentially 4 people you can’t really grumble. They are also all grouped together around an open area. A range of static caravans of varying sizes is also offered, which would be another option. These are dotted all over the very large caravan park, which is mostly made up of owner-occupier static caravans. The site is a short walk from the town centre and a Tesco supermarket is very close. If you want something more luxurious, I’ll leave you to trawl the internet.
For those who want to travel a day early or stay on afterwards, there is a Premier Inn on the outskirts of Kings Lynn. One note of caution – the Sandringham Game Fair occurs over the same weekend as our AGM and traffic in and around Sandringham will be busy on Saturday and Sunday. We recommend finding accommodation north of Sandringham over the weekend to avoid being caught up in the traffic jams on your way to the field sites.
