Hello everyone!

A warm welcome if this is your first hiking email!
Just a quick one to let you all know that our first social of the year will be tonight (that’s Wednesday 24th September) at the Library Pub 8.30pm. New and prospective members are very welcome, just come along, we would love to meet you :D

We are also holding our Intro Meeting on Thursday 26th September at 7.30pm. We expect that it will be in the Maurice Keyworth LT (G.02), which is in the Business School. Afterwards we’re planning to go to the Terrace in the Union before going out to a venue which is tbc.

Our first Sunday hike of the year is this week (Sunday 28th) and it is to Kettlewell in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s a great way to explore some of the beautiful countryside around Leeds, especially if this is your first time here. Sign up for this hike will take place after the Intro Meeting but anyone who can’t attend is also welcome to email me and if there are any spaces after the meeting you will be first on the list to fill them. For anyone wishing to sign up at the meeting please bring £10 in cash as we do not have access to a card machine for that night.

You will also need to have bought membership online before Sunday in order to go on the trip and to have the necessary kit which includes hiking boots with ankle support. Take a look at our website for full advice on the kit you’ll need. 

The website is jam-packed with info about the club and what we do so make sure you check it out!

Looking forward to meeting you all,
