Membership Benefits 2017:
Membership currently costs only £20.00 per year (subs due from January 1st), and brings a whole host of benefits.

The club is affiliated to the British Mountaineering Council, which qualifies HMC members for insurance cover against any civil liability claim up to a limit of £10 million worldwide. We are able to use the huts of other BMC affiliated clubs, and also we are represented at area BMC committee meetings (Midlands).
In addition to the opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded individuals, you will receive the periodic newsletter outlining past and future events.

Significantly, club membership enables members to take advantage of discounts (typically 10%) against goods purchased at certain outdoor equipment stores across the country. It is possible to recoup your membership fee on the next piece of kit you buy!

Applications for grants of up to 10% are available to members taking mountaineering based courses that could be of benefit to the
whole club. In particular, courses leading to awards of the Mountain Leader Qualifications are encouraged.

In short, we hope that membership of Hinckley Mountaineering Club will help you widen your horizons! We believe you’ll find the Club a friendly group of people who share your interests. What’s more, you can enjoy your pursuits safe in the knowledge that the Club’s affiliation to the BMC provides you with excellent civil liability insurance. If that’s not enough, your membership need not cost you a penny if you are planning to invest in new gear during the year thanks to the pre-arranged discounts available at many leading outdoor equipment suppliers. For more information please email the club.
