2015 WTMC Survey Report

Below is a report summarising the results of the WTMC survey conducted in Oct 2015. The survey looked at what you, our members, think about the way the club is run and what could be done better. In particular, the survey looks at how we all contribute to the running of the club and how the work could be better organised. The committee are now assessing which of the report recommendations we should act on and what we can do to improve things.

The club journal, a coffee table publication, is currently a biennial publication. It contains stories about those particularly special trips, accompanied by outstanding photographs.

The latest journal (2018) is available here. Publication of future editions of the journal are dependent on submission of stories and photos by club members and a volunteer journal editor.

Older journals are found online on our newsletter archive for your reading pleasure.

Get Writing!

There may be a new club journal coming your way at the end of the year, but only if the editor has something to put in a presently blank document.

So if you were on one of those trips that was a little bit special, how about putting together a story for publication.  You don’t need to be a J K Rowling or an Ernest Hemmingway – after all there is an editor to help you if needed.

Stories …

  • can be about any club related activity: tramping, climbing, mtb’ing, kayaking, botany  etc
  • should be about 1,200 to 2,500 words and
  • need to have some high resolution photos for illustrations.

The journal can only be as good as the contributions, so please get writing.

Stories will be accepted up to 1 November.  However, please don’t overload the poor editor at the last minute. Send your contribution to the newsletter editor or directly to the journal editor, via email, snail mail, on disc, USB stick or semaphore.

Annual Reports and Financial Reports

Our annual reports  and financial reports provide members and other interested people with information on what the club is doing and how well it is doing it compared to previous years. A snapshot of the club’s activities throughout the preceding year and analysis of trends over time. We do this through a mix of text, tables and graphs.

Below are recent Annual Report and Year End Financials.  For earlier years of annual reports, go to the archives page.
