Peak Area Meeting: 22 November

The next Peak Area Meeting is on Wednesday 22 November 2017, starting earlier than usual at 6.30pm (food from 6.00pm), at The Maynard, Main Road, Grindleford, S32 2HE

Come along to our regular gathering of Peak climbers and walkers, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC. Area meetings are run by volunteers and are your chance to join in with debate and influence decisions about what happens in your area as well as the rest of the country.

The earlier start is to allow time for an action-packed agenda, which will include a presentation by members of the independent Organisational Review Group, an update on the Peak park authority’s management of the Stanage North Lees Estate from Chief Executive Sarah Fowler, the area AGM including elections for the various volunteer roles, and the legendary Annual Quiz.

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

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.
