HIKING WEEKLY NEWS - 29th February 2016

Hello one and all,
Once again I think the Cairngorm peeps were incredibly lucky with the weather judging by some of the epic pictures I have seen.

COMING UP THIS WEEK…

***Wednesday Social*** – 2nd March, 8:30pm onwards @The Library Pub
If you’re like me and the dissertation is getting you down, the library is that little oasis where you can escape your worries for a couple of hours, recharge your batteries with a burger and catch up on the latest club gossip!

***Chew Valley (Peak District) Sunday Hike*** Sunday 6th March 2016 leaving Parkinson Steps at 9am. Cost £10

Not one to be missed as it is the last Sunday hike of the Broomby Administration. We will be heading over to the hills above Manchester for some nice relaxing walks. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us this time. 
--Sign up-- for Chew Valley will be Tuesday 1st March at 8pm using this link: www.luu.org.uk/groups/hiking

***Mystery Weekend Sign –up*** Tuesday 1st March at 8pm Cost £45

Without going into too much detail…on the weekend of 11th-13th March we will basically whisk you off in a van and take you away for some amazing hikes in a mystery location. Don’t worry, it’s not Bradford or Rochdale!! 
Tickets can be bought via this link: www.luu.org.uk/groups/hiking
