Yesterday I caught up with Jon Shanklin, BSBI Field Meetings Secretary who is organising the Summer Meeting this year, and he told me: "The accommodation at FSC Blencathra is now fully booked but people can still book to attend the fieldtrips and to have dinner.
"We'll be travelling to the Friday locations by coach so people do still need to get in touch with me if they'd like to book a space. They would also be welcome to join us for dinner each evening and for the after-dinner talks we have lined up for Thursday and Friday evening.
"After dinner on Saturday and Sunday, we will be holding identification sessions to look at any of the more challenging specimens collected during the fieldtrips.
Again, non-residents are
welcome to join us for these. Contact me to book or for further

Apparently there are other options for
accommodation in the area and non-residents will be spending most of their waking hours looking at plants and hanging out with fellow botanists. So it's still well worth coming along but you do need to book by the end of April please.
