If you wish to find out more about an event beforehand, contact the event co-ordinator, whose name and contact details are published alongside the relevant event in our Calendar. There is a guest fee for non-members on day hikes and also for weekends and trails.

Supper club, pub evenings and other social events are a great opportunity to meet other club members and share experiences.

Members do get first preference in booking for trails and weekends away, but non-members can also book if there is space. If it is a trail, the trail co-ordinator needs to be convinced that fitness requirements are met.

We look forward to having you as a member of our club!
