Fellfarers have unrestricted use of High House for which no charge is payable, and the member’s room is available at all times even if High House is let to another club or to a member booking High House as a club - see below..
Each member should use their own key, and these may be obtained from the club Chairman Roger Atkinson on payment of a £10 deposit.
Children of members, when accompanied by a parent or by a responsible adult nominated by a parent, may also use High House free of charge.
Each member may take up to 2 guests to High House, for which a charge of £5.00 per guest per night is levied. This should be paid to any committee member, or sent to the Treasurer. Any child of 5 years of age or over, who is not the child of a member, is considered to be a guest and the full guest night fee is payable.
1. A couple are both members and they have two children. The couple can stay at High House with their children and no charge is payable. They can take another couple and their two children as their 4 guests, plus more of their children providing they are under 5 years of age.
2. A single mother is a member and she has three children. They can all stay at High House and no charge is payable. The mother can take another couple as her two guests, but not their children unless they are both under 5. Alternatively, she could take one parent and one child over 5 as her guests, but not one parent and two children over 5.
If a member wishes to take more than 2 guests mid-week (Monday to Thursday nights inclusive), they may book High House on the same basis as an external group but for a discounted rate of £65 per night during 2013, and £70 during 2014. The same rules apply as to external groups, so that for instance the members room may not be used. See the High House Booking Secretary.
