CYHU NF2 Summer Gathering 2017

Can You Hear Us? C.I.C (CYHU) and The Neuro Foundation are delighted to provide a memorable weekend of fun activities and the opportunity to share good times with other NF2ers!


The plan:

Friday – A chance to meet, greet and get to know each other in a friendly atmosphere at Willen Pavilion with buffet food and fun activities! Arrival from 16.00pm.

Saturday – Teaming up once again with iDID Adventure to provide an exhilarating, fully accessible indoor  rock climbing experience! Professional instructors, dedicated volunteers and communication assistants will be on  hand to ensure that everyone can take part regardless of abilities. Discover just how high NF2ers can go! After refuelling with lunch, spend the afternoon chilling lakeside or back at the hotel. We finish the day with a tasty evening meal together at the Inn on The Lake and drinks in the hotel bar.

Sunday – A relaxed day visiting a local Llama farm to get up close with and learn about these fascinating creatures. Take an optional short leading-trek in the   surrounding woodlands, and meet mothers with their new babies! A truly unique experience awaits! A picnic lunch will be provided before returning to Milton Keynes to say our goodbyes. Departure by 16:00pm.

The low down:

  • Transport to/from the pub
  • Llama experience and picnic lunch
  • Transport to/from the Llama Farm
  • Please note that you will need to pay separately on the day for your meal and any drinks at The Inn on the Lake

This year we have pre-booked a number of rooms at Hotel Novotel Milton Keynes and managed to negotiate a very significant discount in an effort to make the weekend more affordable.
