We're sorry, but you probably won't be surprised ...

We have decided that given the current situation with covid-19, it would be very unwise to run the Swaledale Squeeze this year. The potential risks to participants and people that we know seem to be too great.

We have held back from opening bookings for the last couple of weeks to see how the situation develops, and we have now decided not to open them. Obviously people might have booked accommodation etc, and we're very sorry for any inconvenience caused. Perhaps you would like to visit Swaledale anyway to support the community in the beautiful location that we make our home for a weekend every year. We will be using some of our reserves to pay the guest tutors in part, to try to help with their loss of earnings.

We'll send the dates of next year's squeeze and keep you posted with that.

Until then, I hope you stay safe and well.

Yes, as I expect you know, regulars all had this as an email too this morning, thanks Pianist.


Disappointing isn't it, but the only sensible decision. A bit tough financially on tutors and local accommodation people as well as maybe Grinton Lodge itself.
