General Club Notes

  • The membership is currently made up of 65 individual members and households.
  • Our programme comprises indoor meetings with a guest speaker during the winter months and walks and expeditions in the summer.
  • The club receives no external funding and relies on subscriptions. In 2023 the annual subscription is £12 per person or £18 per household.
  • Subscriptions can be paid by bank transfer, by cash at a meeting or by cheque made out to Moray Field Club and sent to the Treasurer (email for the bank details or treasurer’s address for cheques)
  • Our indoor meetings are usually held in Elgin Town Hall at 7pm. There is an entry charge of £5 to cover the cost of hall hire and refreshments. Non members welcome at the same rate.
  • All activities are usually featured on the Club Facebook page, in the Elgin edition of Spotlight and the Northern Scot prior to the event, but during Covid restrictions we have limited publicity to our members only.
  • Non-members and guests are welcome. Non members wishing to join a walk or a bus trip will be charged a fee of £5 plus bus fares and entry fees as appropriate.
  • In addition to these activities, the Field Club publishes an annual bulletin, containing information about the year’s activities and articles of local interest by local experts. The bulletin is distributed free to members. No bulletin was published in 2020 or 2021, but we hope to publish again this summer.
  • The club maintains an emailing list, and members are regularly kept informed about activities. Those without email – and there are a few – are contacted by letter or telephone.

The Walks

The Field Club is not primarily a walking group. The walks are not strenuous and rarely longer than 5 miles. A risk assessment is undertaken and distributed to members before each walk. When an outing involves transport by bus, the assembly point is Lossie Green Car Park in Elgin, with pick ups as required en route.

Participants are expected to use their own judgement before taking part in any activity, regarding distance, difficulty, length of outing etc. While the Moray Field Club takes every precaution to ensure the safety and well-being of its members, no responsibility will be accepted for any personal injuries sustained, or for any damage to property caused by a club member whilst pursuing Club activities.
