We're very sorry for last weekend's bus screwup. For some reason the bus driver went to Fulton House at 9am and not uplands as he should have. On the brighter side, we're not relying on buses this weekend and are taking cars! We're also considering how to improve getting hold of the committee on the day, if you're wondering why the bus is delayed etc!

Next Weekend (Away) - SNOWDONIA - 22nd March - 25th March

There are still a couple of PLACES AVAILABLE. This trip will leave on the friday night and return late on monday, giving 3 days of walking/exploring. We'll try to take in some of the famour ridges and peaks, with Snowdon (highest peak outside of Scotland) obviously being one of these!

The image below shows Tryfan, which is another probable walking spot. We'll be staying in a bunkhouse which has central heating, showers, fully equiped kitchen etc. During the day, you'll only need to carry the normal items eg. water/lunch etc. The rest of the gear will stay in the bunkhouse/cars.

The cost of the trip is £50. This includes transport and accommodation for 3 nights. The deposit for this trip is £20. If you're interested, please come along to JCs signup for a chat.

For those worried about what kit they need, come along for a chat, we may have some we can lend you
