The January 2018 issue of the BMC Peak Area Newsletter is now online, keeping you informed about what’s happening in the region, including details of the next BMC Peak Area Meeting.

In this issue: 

  • Area hill walking rep Peter Judd encourages members to support the BMC’s Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million campaign;
  • Henry Folkard provides his regular and thorough round-up of access and conservation news;
  • Dave Parry reports on the latest climbing developments whilst also pondering on what 2018 might bring; 
  • Gary Gibson gives us a run-down on a major clean-up of some Staffordshire Limestone crags, which along with the imminent publication of Peak Limestone South, should create more interest in some high quality, but under-appreciated crags: and
  • Luke Barley updates us on the work of the National Trust in the Peak District and considers how government proposals to restructure farm subsidies post-Brexit might affect landscape management.

Peak Area Meeting: 31 January

The next Peak Area Meeting is on Wednesday 31 January 2018, starting at 7.30pm, at The Maynard, Main Road, Grindleford, S32 2HE

Come along to Grindleford for our next gathering of Peak District climbers and walkers and get involved in the BMC. Area meetings are run by volunteers and provide an opportunity for you to discuss issues and influence decisions affecting climbers and walkers locally and nationally.

BMC Organisational Review
Discussions will continue on the recommendations of the independent organisational review group (ORG) following consideration of feedback provided by members since the group’s report was published in November. The ORG has produced a paper summarising the feedback and the group’s conclusions from that feedback, and encourages members to review this summary document and feedback to National Council and the ORG.

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

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