About our meetings:
Our meetings are held weekly on Thursday evenings at the Hawthorn Hotel from 6:30pm onwards. Attending a minimum of one meeting is compulsory if you would like to be a part of any overnight trips. This is for safety reasons for both the organisers and for you as a member of the club.
In the unlikely event that you cannot make it to any of our meetings due to other commitments, we are happy to arrange a brief catch-up on campus at a time that suits you better.
For more information, please come to the meetings or contact any of the event hosts.
