She has written a superb little book on the subject: ‘About Scout Scar. Looking into a Cumbrian landscape’ and will bring along some copies of the book and cards for sale. Some early Christmas shopping perhaps? She does charge a fee so we will be asking for a small (voluntary) donation on the night..
