We have numerous multi-activity weekends away throughout the year in beautiful parts of the country and holidays abroad. We also have regular social events - everything is detailed in our events calendar.

Social Evening - this is a chance for new members to the club a great chance to meet the members that usually happens most Thursdays. Please check the calendar to confirm the date and location.

Weekends & Bank Holidays - One of the most popular aspects of the club are the weekends away. These are sometimes focused on one activity but often a location is chosen so that a number of activities can take place simultaneously. This means that you can have a bit of variety while you are away. Accommodation is usually camping in the summer and cottages, outdoor centres, youth hostels and walking huts in the winter.

You must be a member to take part in any activity
