e-Newsletter April 2008

It's officially British Summer Time, even if the weather doesn't know it.  It's also AGM time, and this year the BMC AGM will form part of the new Northumberland Climbing and Walking Festival.  Join us in Belford on the weekend of 18-20 April for some climbing, walking and socialising.

We've just launched the latest improvements to BMC Travel & Activity Insurance, so now you can take advantage of our new 'basic' policy option, special rate for couples, and online day picker.
