Membership Renewal

Hi all

Membership was due at the beginning of November. A key part of GDPR means the club needs to remove your details from email and text services if you are no longer a member.

You can renew at any time, but please be aware that emails and texts will stop until you do.

The revised membership form is now up on the website - Membership tab. If you are sending the form directly to Frances - please no cash in the post and also don't put the word Treasurer on the envelope. 

Happy New Year - here's looking forward to lots of good days out on the hills and tracks.
