Hiking Weekly News - 6th October 2015


Good Evening Hikers!

We’re now well and truly into the swing of things, with two fantastic Hikes to the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. I think I’ve actually caught the sun, the weather has been so nice!

For those who are new to the club, this email is designed to give you a brief overview of what is coming up over the next week as well as giving important notices, so please take some time to read through it each week.


We have decided on the three designs for the buffs, if you would like to purchase a buff for £8 please contact Esther our GearSec (gear@luuhc.com) stipulating your choice. Please see the designs on the Facebook group. Orders will close by 19th October. We will contact you about payment at a later stage.

***Coming up this week***

***Wednesday Social*** – 7th October, 8:30pm onwards at the Library Pub
Last week there was a throng of Hikers, let’s keep up the momentum and meet up for a catch-up, burgers and a beverage or two!

***Sunday Hike – Malham GIAG*** - 11th October, leaving 9am Parkinson Steps sharp

For those who want to see what Hiking is all about and were lucky enough to get tickets through the University Union. We look forward to showing you, what is arguably, one of Yorkshire’s best hiking treasures in terms of stunning scenery and eye-catching geographical features.
Please make sure you take a look at our Sunday Hike checklist on the website before the hike.


Unfortunately for those who haven’t already got a ticket the trip is now full, but never fear there are more amazing trips coming up!

***First Weekend Trip- Braithwaite, The Lake District *** Friday 16th- Sunday 18th October
Cost £35!

--Departing at Cromer Terrace, Friday 16th at 5:30pm sharp.--

This is one of our most popular trips of the year. It’s the perfect time to go up to the lakes before winter sets in. We will be staying at Braithwaite institute and completing a series of walks for all abilities including scrambling! As well as the normal Sunday Hike walking gear, you will also need a sleeping bag and roll mat as we will be sleeping on the floor of the hall. We provide your Saturday evening meal and both breakfasts. You just need to bring food for out on the hills and some money for dinner on Friday as we stop off at the Chippy in Settle! For full weekend trip gear visit:

---Borrowing Kit for the weekend trip---

The club does have a limited number of sleeping bags and roll mats. If you would like to loan one, then let us know when you sign up and we will pack you one for the trip.
We should be back on Sunday evening at approximately 7pm. Alternatively email gear@luuhc.com to borrow kit.

---Sign up for Braithwaite! --- Wednesday 7th October Room 3, Upstairs in the University Union 1:30-2:30pm

The sign up for the weekend trip will be in the usual place, also if you have any questions about the club, this would be a good time to come and ask the committee. You can pay for the trip (£35) using cash only as the card machine is still broken.
If you are absolutely unable to attend the sign up, there will be four email spaces available from 8pm tonight (not a minute before) (Monday 5th October) on a first come first serve basis. You need to email secretary@luuhc.com

If anyone has any questions they would like to ask in the meantime, don’t hesitate to drop me an email. Further details about trips, gear and socials are available on www.luuhc.com.

Have a fab week!

Jamie (Secretary)
