 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.

 

Forthcoming Events 

Feb 15th – 22nd, Scotland Winter Week, Spean Bridge.  Cost TBA, maybe in the range £80 to £110, depending on how many go, for 7 nights accommodation.

March 14th – 16th: Peak District, Pondside Bunkhouse at Thorpe Farm near Hathersage.  14 places @ TBA each.  Details to follow.

Welcome to the Trekking and Mountaineering section of this website.

This section of the website relates to trekking and mountaineering exploits of our members. This will include trekking, back packing and mountaineering experiences of some of the illustrious members of this club who undertake journeys into the unknown from time to time.

Ian powditch, chairman of this club, successfully completed The Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand recently. He has managed to publish a short report of his experience together with some splendid photographs he managed to bag.

 

In Autumn 2006, the two most illustrious and senior members of our club, Ian and Marianne Stuart undertook a breath taking and extraordinary trekking expedition in the Himalayas. Ian and Marianne made a detailed note of this journey together with excellent photographs. The pictures can be viewed in our Gallery.

These notes summarise a talk that Ian gave to the Club at The Grouse and Claret in May 2007.
