Facilities Open to Members

The CHAmois Mountaineering Centre

See the Mountaineering Centre section for full details.

Agnes Spencer Memorial Hut

Lake District,

In 1983, the CHAmois Mountaineering Club entered into an agreement with the Cleveland Mountaineering Club to allow members to use one another's huts. This gives Chamois members use of the Cleveland Club's Agnes Spencer Memorial Hut at Patterdale in the Lake District. Members can view the arrangements for using the Cleveland hut by following this link.

Up to four Cleveland MC members may use the CHAmois Mountaineering Centre at any time, or possibly more, by arrangement with the Chamois Hut Bookings Secretary. Cleveland members are subject to the same conditions and fees as CHAmois members and have the use of the CHAmois Members Quarters. For more details contact the Secretary

The Newsletter

The Club produces a Newsletter that comes out once every three months. This provides a regular source of information concerning meets and other activities of members.

Club sweatshirts/hoodies

We have an arrangement with a shop in Bangor for purchasing a range of garments with the club logo embroidered onto the chest. The choice of garments is either an ordinary sweatshirt, a zipped version, a normal weight hoodie or a chunky hoodie (with or without zip) with the Club logo on (in white). To see more information about the range of garments and colours go to the following websites

Sweatshirt (code 62-216-0 without zip, 62-160-0 with zip) £15.00
Chunky Hoodie (code JH100) £25.00
Hoodie with Zip (Zoodie, code JH050) £25.00
Chunky Hoodie with Zip (Zoodie, code JH052) £27.50

Sizes are from S - 2XL

Steve (the shop owner) can be contacted as follows:

Tel. 07402919563
Shop address 344B High Street, Bangor LL57 1YA

Items can be either picked up from the shop or posted. The cost of postage would be variable but probably £5 would cover most. Steve is very obliging so if you have any queries do contact him. He has said that he could even change the wording on the logo (slightly) if required.

The Club Library

An information sheet is available from the Librarian (Keith Love).
