Peak Area Meeting: 20 March
The next Peak Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 20 March 2019, starting at 7.30pm, at The Maynard, Grindleford, S32 2HE.
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, and to meet like-minded people and enjoy a sociable night out.
Derbyshire Constabulary’s Wildlife Crime Officer and the RSPB Investigations Team will be attending the meeting to tell us more about what they are doing to protect wildlife and what we can do to help.
All are welcome; food will be provided by the BMC, available from 6.30pm.
See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting
The Access and Conservation Trust
The BMC's charity – the BMC Access & Conservation Trust – promotes sustainable access to cliffs, mountains and open countryside by facilitating education and conservation projects across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
By educating climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers to enjoy outdoor recreation while minimising their impact on the landscape, conserving the UK’s upland resources, and campaigning for improved access rights, ACT enables future generations to continue to enjoy outdoor activities and the physical, mental and social benefits they bring to individual lives and society in general.
