BMC Organisational Review: latest developments
National Council has established a working group to develop proposals for implementing the review group’s recommendations, and these proposals will be published prior to the meeting, which will offer an important opportunity for members to provide feedback and influence the final version of the proposals, to be presented to members for approval at the BMC AGM on 16 June.

All are welcome; food will be provided by the BMC.

See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting

While climbing at Sit Down Buttress (Hidden Quarry) on Thursday 5th April we saw a couple of peregrines circling overhead. They appear to be nesting in the far distance of the quarry complex, about 600m away and not affecting climbing at Sit Down. Given the issues regarding Ravensdale, we could demonstrate our proactive view on conservation by recommending a restriction on climbing around the back of Hidden Quarry or at least find out where they are nesting.
