indicating your exact accommodation and dietary requirements as soon as possible. Although Andrea will book people into the hotel for the meeting, participants are requested to pay their own hotel bills.

The Stonecross Manor Hotel is a comfortable, attractive, stone building situated about a mile from the centre of Kendal. It is on the A6. The hotel is wheelchair-friendly and has good parking facilities. Rates include use of the leisure centre (heated pool and hot tub). Mainline intercity trains stop at nearby Oxenholme. This is less than two miles from the hotel. Taxis are available to complete the trip at roughly 7 UK pound sterling each way. Some trains from Manchester go into Kendal, but Oxenholme is closer to the hotel.

Alcohol Research UK hope that you will be able to attend. If you know of any colleagues who are engaged in alcohol research please pass on details of the meeting to them
