Peak Area Meeting: 4 November

Come to our next (virtual) gathering of Peak District climbers and walkers and get involved in the BMC.

The next Peak Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 4 November 2020, starting at 7.30pm, and will be an online meeting held via Zoom, with registration for the meeting via Eventbrite.

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. The November meeting is also the Area AGM, and will include elections for various volunteer roles. All are welcome.

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