The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) works on behalf of hillwalkers, climbers and mountaineers (including ski mountaineers) in England and Wales. To carry out its diverse work, the BMC has a network of 600 volunteers backed up by 26 paid staff in the Manchester office who provide experience, knowledge, resources, funding and organisation.

Here Dave Turnbull, CEO of the BMC, gives the first BMC Christmas Address to the UK's mountain community providing an overview of the BMC's work in 2007 and the challenges that lay ahead in 2008.

First UKClimbing.com would like to thank Dave Turnbull, the staff at the BMC offices in Manchester, all those who do BMC voluntary work and all BMC members for their massive contribution to climbing and hillwalking in England and Wales.
