Who Can Join?

Membership of the Club

We welcome new members, though suggest you join us for a walk before committing as a full member.

Membership of the Club shall only be open to individuals who recognise that hill-walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Members shall be aware of and accept these risks and agree to be responsible for their own actions and involvement hereinafter referred to as "the Members".

Persons under 18 may accompany adult members taking part in the activities of the club. An experienced and responsible adult member will have sole responsibility for the person or persons under 18 and themselves.

All members will be subject to the regulations of the constitution and by joining the Club will be deemed to accept these regulations and codes of practice that the Club has adopted.

The Club respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat all Members equally within the context of Club activities, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.

The Club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to club disciplinary procedures.
