Club Kit Available for Members to Borrow

If you’re worried that your kit doesn’t match up to what you’ll need for Club Trips, below is a list of kit available to borrow (see the Kit List).

All items are subject to availability – their need for Club Trips takes precedence over individual requests for borrowing kit. Members are responsible for checking the condition of any kit borrowed, and informing the Safety Officer in full of any defects found.

Please contact the Safety Officer to request kit.

* 1st Aid Kits are crucial to members’ safety – it is imperative that you notify the Safety Officer if you use anything from the kits, or items are missing or out of date, so they can be replaced accordingly.

** Anyone using technical winter walking equipment takes full responsibility over the risks associated with their use. You are expected to read and understand the Club’s policy on borrowing ice axes and crampons and how to use them safely.

You must consult the committee over any doubt around these matters, and inform them if defects are found with the equipment.

*** See the Club Library.

Added a list of the stuff that was initially listed as "other random lost property"... Some interesting stuff in there. The seven-nail puzzle was particularly interesting.

I've just realised you posted this comment, sorry.

I'll put up a list of the stuff there later. Maybe that will help it get claimed...
