The BMC: with walkers all the way
This just gone up on the BMC's website:
https://www.thebmc.co.uk/bmc-on-foot-supporting-hill-walking
Nice to see this initiative done in the UK. Nicer still if Ireland takes steps to do the same too!

"The BMC: with walkers all the way"

The BMC isn’t just for climbers – that’s the message behind a new push to raise awareness of the BMC’s work for hill walkers and its stance on a range of topical issues affecting hill walkers.
Led by the BMC’s new hill walking development officer, Carey Davies, the BMC will roll out a 12-week series of web articles and social media initiatives focusing on a different topic each week – all under the banner BMC on Foot.

‘BMC on Foot’ is part of the Britain on Foot campaign, recently launched to get Britain active in the outdoors and enjoying the health benefits of activities such as hill walking. The BMC is a key supporter of Britain on Foot.

Carey says: “The BMC is going big on hill walking this summer. The idea is that by the end of the summer, new and experienced hill walkers will have a much better idea of the work we do on their behalf. Hopefully it will stimulate debate and galvanise opinion at a time when a huge range of environmental, economic and political changes are taking place which could have a major impact on the countryside we know and love.

“From our work in Westminster to our approach to the controversial but popular Three Peaks Challenge, from wind farms to the on-going wrangles over coastal access, we’re aiming to shed light on the ways we work to affect and improve the world of walking.

“As part of our support for the Britain on Foot campaign we’ll also explain what the BMC is doing to support people taking their first steps into hill walking and show more people the benefits of an active, outdoor lifestyle.

Carey adds: “We’re hoping to remind hill walkers that the BMC is a relevant organisation for them to join and to encourage people to get involved in their local areas. We want to get everyday hill walkers interacting with us. Watch this space and keep checking the BMC website, Twitter and Facebook for updates throughout the summer.”

In support of the BMC’s work for hill walkers, Alan Hinkes, first Briton to climb all 14 mountains higher than 8,000 metres, said: “Maintaining access to wild land and paths is important to all hill walkers. Access and Conservation is one of the BMC's most valuable and important functions - funding footpath repair and restoration work and keeping the hills open for all of us.”
