Event Description

At the last meet it was decided that we could do with having a discussion about where we want to take the club over the next year with regards to the website, meetings, events etc.  As such we will be having a meeting 08-01-2014 in the pub from 8:30pm onwards to discuss the same.  It goes without saying that all are welcome.

Thanks Malcolm for you input it good to see your keeping an eye on us, your suggestion needs discussing.  Looks like we have to do something as we can't afford an expensive web site.  Yet another reason to get our heads together on Wednesdays meeting. Regards Derek

I notice that, since Ning are pricing small users out all reason, other clubs are migrating to a site called meetup. Clubs include Lancashire Mountaineering Club and Northern Walkers,

We have been notified by the people who host our website, Ning, that they are going to drastically increase their prices.   Not only will there be a massive increase in the monthly hosting fees, but the website will also need to be completely rewritten, as they have introduced a new format.

 The Managers of 40sWalkersNorth have studied the price increase and have decided that it would be in the best interest of the group for us to migrate away from Ning.   Bearing this in mind, the Managers have been looking at the various options open to us.  

 After much discussion, it has been decided that the simplest and cheapest solution would be to set up a group on "Meet Up".   For those of you who are not familiar with Meet Up, it's the world's largest network of groups.  The Meet Up concept offers us everything that we need to run our group, at a reasonable monthly fee, and is a very easy site to use.  

Hope this is of use.
