The committee is continually monitoring the situation with the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.  Good news at last!  With England now on stage 4 of the Roadmap out of Lockdown, Wales on Alert Level 0 and Scotland beyond Alert Level 0.  We are running club trips again, following the BMC COVID guidance.  There was an informal gathering of a few members in Snowdonia and a full Club  trip, to the Peak District in May (report for the club trip coming soon).  There was the Welsh 3,000s Expedition in June (Shane’s advertising word!) and a Welsh camping trip in early August.  See the upcoming trips page for other planned trips.

We’ll be speaking to Big Rock about re-starting the monthly social climbs.  It’s been long and hard but we are getting there.

MKMC 2020 AGM Chair’s Report

Thank you Louie for nominating me to be on the committee last year.  Also thank you COVID for spoiling our fun!  However, as much as we’ve all missed our trips and usual life this year I have noticed how much members have come together and connected in many ways due to the fact that so much was taken from us in 2020.  Some of us have been on trips, some have climbed, some have done mountaineering, some have done fantastic challenges, so it hasn’t all been negative.  Continue reading
