The club maintains some equipment which can be borrowed by members free of charge. Naturally it is expected that any equipment borrowed will be looked after with care, and returned in good/clean condition (See here for general guidance on caring for equipment). You can arrange to use the equipment by contacting Richard Freer (07971 215203).
Any damage caused however slight (or incident which may have caused damage even if not visible) MUST be reported when the equipment is returned. Please do not use the equipment if there is any cause for concern as to its correct/safe operation. Club members must accept responsibility for an initial safety inspection and subsequent correct use of any equipment borrowed from the club.
