Welcome note

Welcome to Hilary Term with OUWC!

We are looking forward to yet another exciting term packed with weekend tripsday trips, and local walks! Our minibus trips this term include day trips to the Wye Valley, Black Mountains and the Seven Sisters and weekend trips to Snowdonia and the Lake District. Sign up using our online booking form (closes 20th Jan). To find out more about this term’s trips and meet the trip organisers, come along to Free Cake (so called because it features lots and lots of Free Cake).

We also run weekly local walks to the scenic countryside of the Cotswolds, Chilterns and Thame Valley. We use public transport for local walks so no sign up or membership is required, just turn up on the day!

On the social side, we have our Annual Dinner in Hilary term (more details to follow). We also have lots of other socials planned, including games nights, pub quizzes, night walks through Port Meadow and, of course, Pancake Day (totally my favourite day of the year!).

If you are interested in getting more involved with the club in anyway, please do not hesitate to get in touch (president@ouwc.org). We are always looking for enthusiastic people to organise trips and can pair you with more experienced club members to make the process much less daunting. We are also always in need of drivers so if you are aged 21 or over and have had a license for more than two years, please consider driving a minibus for us. We also run regular Mountain Skills and First Aid courses for those interested in leading walks for us. As an added bonus, both leaders and drivers get a guaranteed space on trips for both themselves and a friend.

Finally, please do join our mailing list and Facebook group as this is the easiest way to stay up to date with all the events we run. Our Facebook group can also be used by club members to organise walks and find like-minded people to join them, whether it be local walks during the vacation or something more adventurous such as trekking in Europe or scrambling in North Wales.
