Happy New Year – you might have already broken your resolutions, but there’s still time to make some new ones, and we have a few suggestions.

Planning a big trip this year and not sure how to organise it? Head to North Wales this weekend for the BMC expedition planning seminar, headlined by none other than Mick Fowler and Calum Muskett. We’ve also just launched a brand new travel insurance scheme with enhanced benefits.

‘This Girl Can’, Sport England’s national campaign to encourage more women and girls to get active, launches this evening with a 90-second ad on ITV at 7.45pm.
