Upcoming Events

Corona Virus Update

At its March 2020 meeting, the RHSoc Committee decided that, in the light of Government advice, all trips before September 2020 should be rescheduled with others placed under review. Relative Mutters 5 (March 20) provides more information about rescheduling, deposits etc.

Sadly, a review in July 20, means that all St Kilda trips, originally planned for Autumn 2020, are also cancelled but they have been rescheduled for Autumn 2021- see below. We still hope that some form of Autumn 20 Bagger Rambles can go ahead and will give more details in August 20.

You can contact the Committee for more information at any time by emailing rhsoc@rhsoc.uk.
