The nights are drawing out, so now’s the time for making plans for the summer. And if you need help or advice why not think about contacting the BMC? We'll do our best to help with any technical queries - be it about access arrangements, insurance, medical issues or equipment. You'll also find a whole host of useful information on our website.
