I've been meaning to write a post for ages asking if any of you know the Horton Women's Centre and asking you to support it if you ever get chance.

It's a brilliant place offering affordable holidays to women and children, it's often used by vulnerable women who would never get a break otherwise but is also just a lovely place to go with a group of friends or alone. They've been getting stick recently for refusing to change their policy on only admitting biological women, and I fear for its future if/when the changes to the GRA go ahead. But in the meantime, if anyone's in the mood for some great feminist company in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales I recommend it highly.

I second that recommendation!
I go every year with a group of friends and its excellent.
Theres a really well equipped playroom and a large garden full of outdoor play equiptment so its an absolute heaven for small children.
We just sit drinking wine and chatting while the kids do their thing. Its probably the most relaxed holiday its possible to have with kids in tow.
You should all get down there

unlimited that sounds brilliant smile I've never actually stayed there - I live quite nearby so have just been to a couple of day events. I'd like to get more involved though. They were advertising a monthly women's group a while ago but it doesn't seem to be happening at the moment - making a mental note to myself to get in touch!

I've never been but I have had friends who have been, and they've loved it.

It's a brilliant place. Cheap and cheerful [there's a sliding scale, so you can go even if you're skint] and friendly and informal. It's set up so if you come from far away, or by train, you can borrow boots and coats etc. We sometimes book it as a group which is really lovely. Much wine has been drunk by the fire or at the kitchen table! I think of it as my other home...
