Is the school holidays all that is stopping you Rich
I guess im just going to have to run for parliment in order to change the school holidays to run along side this canoe trip - I WILL NOT BE STOPPED - VOTE COLIN - PARTY MANIFESTO - FREE CANOE TRIPS FOR ALL (Guess i aint getting woodys vote then!!!)
What time of year is the driest/least midge infested for the area of the proposed trip?

Blackfly (midge) free until the second week of May, they peter out (sort of) second week of June to be replaced with mosquitos, deer flies, and the really scary moose flies come out in July. However if it cools down (like it does evey night) the midges come back

I find them at £398 return, Heathrow to Halifax each Thursday.
It's always nice to save money though, should you have found them cheaper!
When I say I'm interested, what I mean is I actually will go if this trip is still on in May/June.
If it's postponed then, personally, I'd prefer to do it same time next year as opposed to later this year. (that's preferential mind, not set in stone )
It's a daylight/mozzy/moosefly/weather type of reasoning. Just my 2 pence worth.
