e-Newsletter January 2009
Welcome

Happy new year! Many of us will have made new year resolutions to get fit and to make the most of our fabulous countryside by getting outdoors more to go climbing and hill walking. The BMC has just published a Green Guide to the Uplands which brings together good practice advice on how to care for the fragile upland landscape. Why not make it your resolution to take a look at how you can make your visits to the uplands even greener?

Thank you for your continued support of the BMC in 2009.

Dave Turnbull, BMC CEO
