e-Newsletter September 2010

With the Coalition Government looking to cut expenditure, it’s important that we make it aware of the support for improved coastal access. Get involved in our campaign, by writing to your local MP or working with us and local authorities in your area to ensure our voice is heard.

This month’s Stoney Middleton ‘revival’ weekend is an invitation for all climbers to get together and reminisce about the glory days of what was for many years the hub of Peak District climbing activity. Of course, ‘The Dale’ is still full of great routes, so don’t forget your climbing gear.

Dave Turnbull, BMC CEO
