You can also meet us on a Tuesday club night which starts with social time to catch-up over tea/coffee and biscuits and hire gear followed by an interesting talk. There are always people present who can answer your questions and put you in touch with organisers of upcoming trips.

We hold a New Member's night each year new members' evening with presentations about club activities and sign-up for the club's popular bushcraft course. At our Winter Activities Night Winter Activities you can find out about and sign-up for the club's various winter instruction courses.
Never tramped before?
To start tramping you'll need certain basic gear, such as tramping boots, warm clothes, a waterproof layer and a pack. If you're going away for the weekend you'll also need a sleeping bag. Some of this gear can be hired at the club's gear room, however some you'll need to buy or borrow from a friend. A more detailed gear list can be found in the fixture card. See also our trip information.
If you've never done any tramping before then we recommend you attend our bushcraft Instruction course. This will give you most of the skills you need to go tramping - you'll meet some interesting people too! Have a look at the activities page for more information about instruction courses.
