e-Newsletter February 2009

Some good news and bad news this month; first the bad. The exceptional winter conditions have seen a number of tragic accidents. If you're heading into the mountains make sure you are well prepared for the conditions. The good news comes from Sport England, who have approved our funding application for 2009-13; this means that we will have more money to support clubs, competitions and mountain training in particular. Further details to follow next month.
