The Venus & Cupid Arts Trust is organising a Cross Bay Walk on Sunday 12 May 2019, to raise funds to pay for the on-going repairs to the Sculpture.

See below for how to book

The walk starts at 11.15 am at Arnside Promenade, crossing the sands to Kent’s Bank, 2 miles west of Grange-over-Sands.  It is about 8-10 miles long and generally takes about 4 hours.  Most of the terrain is sandy, but there are soft, muddy spots, and one or two of the main channels can be up to thigh-deep in water.

Costs

The basic charge is £12 per adult, £9 for children 16-17, £7 for children under 16 years. *

Discounts for parties of three or more people, all booked and paid for as a single party:

Adult: £10.     16-17 years: £7.   Child (11-15): £5. (max. 2 children under 16 per adult, see note below *)

Transport

Since the rail service from Kent’s Bank to Arnside has a limited capacity (see note below †), Venus & Cupid will book a 50-seater coach back to Arnside.  This will leave Kent’s Bank once the whole group has arrived.  (We may run second coach if there is sufficient demand.)

Cost: £5 per seat, all ages.

Notes

*  The organisers stipulate that “the walk is not suitable for children under eleven years old unless they are used to reasonably strenuous walks”.  They add that under 16’s should be accompanied by a responsible adult.  In this respect we ask that there be at least one adult for every two childrenin each party, as there are potential dangers if children should stray from the specified route.

†  There is a Sunday rail service from Kent’s Bank to Arnside, but it has a limited capacity and should not be depended upon for the return journey.  Trains depart Kent’s Bank at 15.15 and 16.20 for Arnside, Silverdale, Carnforth and Lancaster.

Unfortunately the earliest Sunday morning service to Arnsidedoes not arrive until too late for the walk.  If there is sufficient demand, however, we may be able to organise outward transport from Morecambe to Arnside:  please let us know whether you would be interested, when you make your booking.

§. Paypal booking form: you need to book each category of Walker (adult/child/etc, also coach seats) separately.  Then use “CONTINUE SHOPPING” to enter the second category, and so on.
