Slide Show – St Lucia & Kerala


View Doug’s attempts to seek relief from the damp chill of Essex in last year’s darker months. Walk the palm-fringed coast and verdant rain forests in St.Lucia’s tropical paradise, and ascend the iconic peak of Gros Piton. Cycle and cruise through the tranquil backwaters, lush plantations and bustling villages of Kerala, in Southern India. Take brief glimpses at exotic Istanbul, the ski-slopes of the Austrian Tyrol, and the precipitous shores of Lake Garda. Take inspiration for your own future winter escape!

Mountain Safety & Navigation

Dave P

What hazards might we face in the Lake District? A chance to think about how to keep our trips safe for everyone.  Navigation, clothing & equipment, weather, hypothermia, ticks… and many other possible topics, complete with informative videos.  We’ll also be having a look  at the basic food hygiene advice we should be aware of when catering for the group.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
