The Old Nat West Bank Account

After a lengthy struggle involving  visits to branches, correspondence and mail chasing around the long abandoned addresses of long abandoned treasurers, false starts, misunderstandings and the suppression of common sense and reason over many months, the old Nat West account is closed. The cluclub’s new account has received the balance owing....96p. So the party will be a short one!lSee More

Helping the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre

Putting Something Back

If you are from near Bury (Lancashire) and love the outdoors, want to promote opportunities for young people to enjoy the Lakes at minimal cost, have enjoyed using the Bury…

High Mountain trip Next Year

I am keen to get to the Himalayas or perhaps the Andes next year. I'd prefer to go with trusted cronies - so if you might be keen on the same thing please let me know, otherwise I'll book on an Exodus trip (I had to explain to Caroline this is not a one way journey to Switzerland!) in October as an individual.

Bothy Adventure

There were just three of us, Andy, Dave and myself. Work gave up the fight on Friday and we were away in mid afternoon; heading for the western end of loch Arkaig at the southern end of Knoydart; a remote spot. We sheltered from the rain in the Moffat Chippy as we have done many times before pressing on to begin the walk-in. Our wild life drive revealed a pine martin, lots of deer and a dancing fox. An hour and a half's walk  in the wind, rain and darkness brought us to an empty bothy. It's…

Staying Solvent

The club's financial system is very primitive. We collect subs, pay more than half of what we collect to the BMC, act as a bank for various (self financing) trips and occasionally buy sandwiches, pay YHA subscriptions or buy some of the bits and pieces we cannot borrow.

 

Analysts will recognise immediately that:

 

  • we get all our income during the first few weeks of the year - so we have to make the money last
  • when an event isn't self financing that…

Thanks for the loan of the harnesses.
We missed the walk today as I spent longer getting my mum's new tv to work than I thought I would and I didn't ralise the drive was an hour away. However Amy and I made up for it with a great afternoon at Troy Quarry instead- using her new harness!
