Welcome

The new BMC Access Charter calls on government to secure and enhance public access to England’s countryside. It’s a timely reminder, given the response to the consultation on the management of the public forest estate.

It’s the BMC AGM and Annual Dinner next month. You can make your vote count and have an active and sociable weekend in Snowdonia, or vote by proxy if you can’t attend.
