How to join Bremex

Why join Bremex?

Bremex offers a number of benefits to its members:

  • We are a small and informal club that welcomes new members
  • The club is small enough for new members to get to know other people easily
  • Several younger people have recently joined and reinvigorated the club
  • We have a good balance of men and women attending our meets
  • Our members are keen to learn from each other and we believe that everyone has something to offer
  • We tailor our activities to suit what members actually want and, as we are a small club, new members can have a real influence
  • Members with cars are happy to give lifts, especially to new members
  • We welcome everyone, regardless of race, gender, age or sexuality.

How to join

Everyone who is keen to develop, improve and share their skills in hillwalking, mountaineering and climbing can apply to become a member of Bremex.  Annual membership runs from 1st January to 31st December and covers affiliation to the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) and club insurance. There is a sliding fee scale for joining part-way through the year.

If you’d like to join or have any membership queries please send an email to our membership secretary here.

Membership fee

You can join, initially as an associate member, by paying the annual fee, which for 2017 is £34. Alternatively, if you would like to try us out first, you can attend up to two taster weekends at £10 per time. If you then join within one year, the amount you have already paid (£10 or £20) is deducted from your membership fee. For example if you have already attended two taster weekends and paid £20, the balance then due is only £14.

Junior membership

The club also has a category for junior members. Anyone aged between 14 and 17 can join providing they are accompanied at all times by their parent/guardian or responsible adult nominated by their parent/guardian. The fee for junior members for 2017 is £10. Your application will need to be approved by your parent/guardian. Please also read the Under 18s guidance notes.

BMC Participation Statement – please read

The BMC recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
