The opportunity to improve your hill walking skills through attending training courses - see the Training & Safety page.
The opportunity to learn new skills from experienced Club members.
Buying surplus equipment donated by members at the annual Silent Auction, held after the AGM in March. Proceeds go towards our annual donation to a Mountain Rescue Team or similar charity.
