Benefits of membership

Bag responsibly

Members will be expected to behave responsibly and lawfully. Each individual will be responsible for their own risk-assessment and welfare and behave in a manner that does not inconvenience or jeopardise the welfare of others.

RHSoc will not organise, lead, guide, or provide transport for members engaged in hill-bagging or related activities. However, individual members are encouraged to organise trips, and invite others to join them, for the purpose of relative hill bagging.
