We reiterated that the organiser of the event will manage the booking and who has paid etc and liaise with the treasurer. Paid up members first and the opened up to others if places left.
Future events will be on the website, next one is Sunday 7th - walk at Kentmere.

Phil Seddon kindly donated a number of mountaineering books to the club including climbing route guides. A list will be put on the website and if you want to borrow one let us know and we can bring it to the next meeting. Make sure it comes back so that others can benefit from them. If anyone has any books gathering dust and would like to add to the library , pls feel free.
