Welcome back! (September 2014)

Explorers welcomes all new and returning students for the 2014/15 academic year! Our term programme for the autumn term is online and we have some taster walks this year during welcome fortnight. Find out how to join.

Summer break (July 2014)

Term and exams are over and we've just come back from a glorious summer trip in the Pyrenees that included ice-axing over snow fields, a campsite with a pool and jacuzzi, waterfalls hundreds of metres high, many delicious variations on French crêpes and an unexpected free night in a four-star hotel!

Some of us are still around over the summer and we'll be going on walks, of course - drop any of the committee an e-mail if you're intrested in joining in. Otherwise, see you at the start of next term in September!
