e-Newsletter June 2008

June sees the official start to the summer.  With the mountains and crags filling up, there's even more reason to take care of them and lessen our impact.  This month we've launched a new Crag Care Fund to support our regional access and conservation work.  You can help by following the BMC Crag Code, being aware of the risk of moorland fires and by checking the RAD database for the latest access info. Enjoy the hills!
