The actual area meeting will be at The Old Orleton Inn, just off the M54 near Telford, join us for free buffet with tea/coffee from 8pm (other drinks available to purchase from the bar of course). The meeting will start at 8:30pm and we're aiming to be wrapped up by 10pm at the very latest. 

    As the The Old Orleton Inn is just a stones throw from The Wrekin we are going take in a walk around and over The Wrekin before the meeting. To do our bit for the BMC's H2O campaign we'll be aiming to collect any litter we see on our walk (rubbish bags will be provided). We'll be leaving the main Wrekin Car Park at 6:45pm sharp, aiming for a pleasant stroll to the summit and back in time to return to the The Old Orleton Inn for 8pm.

Area meetings are key to this, it’s where local action starts and ideas are discussed.

    On this special weekend you get to stay at the hut for free on Friday and Saturday nights in return for spending one whole day working on the hut (either the Saturday or the Sunday). Whichever day you are not working on the hut you can enjoy yourself climbing, walking, cycling or just chilling out!

    There are plenty of different jobs to do at the hut and no special skills are required to help out. Although if you do have a particular talent in something like Plumbing, Electrics, Woodwork, etc I'm sure we can put your skills to good use. 

    We plan to give the hut a deep clean on the inside. Outside we'll make sure everything is tidy and trimmed, drainage channels clear, etc. There may also be repairs and project work to be done, more details nearer the time.

    You'll need to bring your own food/drink for the weekend although tea/coffee plus cakes/biscuits will be provided. On Saturday night we'll walk into Llanberis for a curry and pint.

    Please bring with you suitable clothing for doing mucky work (possibly in the cold and wet). And please bring any tools we might need (gardening tools are always useful).
