COVID-19 Situation

Due to the on going Covid-19 pandemic and the government instructions to stay home and only go out for essential activities, the STMC meet in Cornwall and the May Scotland meet are  both cancelled. So the next scheduled meet is N Wales camping in June is now cancelled. The S Wales in July is cancelled.As and when the situation becomes clear there will be an update.

New Arrangements for Membership

In the coming months STMC is planning to make significant changes to its membership arrangements.  For existing members the current system of annual renewals will be discontinued and all existing members will be offered life membership.  New members will be asked to pay a one-off joining fee of £25.  New members will also be asked to complete and sign a membership application form as at present.  After the end of 2013 the Club will no longer maintain its affiliation to the British Mountaineering Council.   Members who want to continue receiving the benefits of BMC membership (insurance, discounts, Summit etc) will be able to join BMC as individual members.

Club activities will continue as at present: meets at roughly one per month, local walks, London socials and Xmas meals, and the main means of communication will be the E-News.

At the moment we have not been through this website to reflect these changes, so please be aware that in future the club will operate as described here.
