My name is Hanz, a second year student of Molecular Biology. The type of walks I enjoy are the challenging ones like the Long Distance Walkers Association's Challenge Events. Being a Trips Officer makes me responsible for organising the club's trips around the UK. I am excited to have a more involved role with the society this year and hope to see plenty of you come along!
Hello! I'm Alex, the Social Sec but with experience in publicity and trips. I'm currently on a Masters course in Translation Studies, so if you don't understand the club's sense of humour, I might be able to make sense of it for you! One of my favourite routes is the Mam Tor > Winnats Pass > Castleton route, which is bassically a big hill with madly wild weather followed by a picturesque village. We get quite a high amount of international students too, so don't worry if your'e not feeling that confident - if you have any doubts, just send us an email or face book message.
Hiya! My name is Issam Mawhoube; I am an overseas student from Morocco doing an engineering course. Being the Kit Officer, I have the responsibility to make sure all the kit needed for the walks is organised and in order. My favourite walk is any walk that involves bad weather; it just gives you way more stories to tell!
Hi, I’m Noye and I’m the treasurer! That means that even if you don’t ever hand money to me directly, it all goes past me at some point, so if you have any questions about it I’m your girl. I joined the club last year, but this is actually my third year in Sheffield (I kept googling Sheffield Hiking Club, whoops). I have a really unfortunate habit of looking a lot more unfriendly than I mean to, but I promise I want to talk to you! You’re most likely to catch me on Saturday walks, especially near the beginning of the semester even when it’s cold (no guarantees if it’s raining though!)
Hellooooooo! (…haha…) I’m currently a PhD student in the chemistry department and I joined the club all the way back in 2012 (…oh dear, I’m old…) My roles on the committee this year are safety and training officer and publicity. Being safety officer I make sure that everyone is safe and happy on our walks and hopefully no one ends up falling off a cliff, followed by sheep or ends up in the middle of a lake. However, being publicity officer also means you’ll get a lovely email from the club every Tuesday (…read till the very end…) and you’ll see me on most of the walks. I’m usually the short one who has a slight laughing problem and can normally be seen clutching a block of nutritious malt loaf (…FYI, sliced malt loaf isn’t as good as what you might think…) Anyway, my favourite place to walk is Grindleford. Not only is it home to Curbar edge, which provides some nice views on a good day, the train station café also does huge pint mugs of tea!
I’m Kas, your web and inclusions officer., Leeds born and bred, despite the exotic name – the local Yorkshireman of the group. I have recently graduated from an MA in Subtitling and Translation Studies. So if you don’t understand our club’s crazy banter or jokes, I will interpret/translate it for you. I have been a member of the Walking Club for over 5 years (since 2012), so both during my undergrad and postgrad. (Yes, another club oldie.)
As your web officer, it’s my job to make sure that this website is well organised, presentable and kept up-to-date.
As an inclusion officer, I think your wellbeing and participation are very important. we encourage all members to get involved as much as they can and this includes international students, disabled students and postgraduate and mature students as well. Some of my favourite walks include Fairholmes to Margery Hill and Eyam to Bakewell along the Monsal trail.
