Derby Activity Social Hiking


Home Events Who are We FAQs Archive Links Contact Us

DASH Group is open to people of all ages who enjoy walking, social and adventurous activities.

We meet alternate Tuesdays at 8pm in the Brunswick Inn, Station Approach, Derby, (see right hand panel for details). The meetings, or Club Nights, are both social events and opportunities to discuss forthcoming activities.

Details of walks and other events are normally given out at the Club Night prior to the event or see Events for a list of forthcoming events and this page for imminent events.

Weekends away are generally booked two or three months prior to the event (longer for Bank Holiday weekends) and generally require a deposit.

You no longer need to become a member of the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) to stay in youth hostels on DASH Group trips as we have a group membership.

For further details of walks and other events on the programme, please contact the organizer for more information.

For other general enquiries contact Dave  by e:mail or on 07974 513237 or come along a club night or we could meet beforehand for a chat.
