The club welcomes new members. Young, not so young, families and individuals can all join our club. There is no requirement to complete a set number of trips, but you will need to come to a club night to meet club members. We recommend that you go along on one or two trips before you decide to join, so that you can see if you like us and we can see if we like you.
Once you have decided that you will join us, then all you need to do is complete the application form.
We expect that people who participate in our trips will be club members so while we encourage you to come on one or two before joining, we expect you to join the club before joining in more trips.
