Club Committee

Steven Johnson - President

I would consider myself an all-rounder in the mountains. I'm a keen hill walker, rock climber, winter climber and even have some alpine experience.

I joined the club in 2017 as a relative novice and have gain experience from many of the existing members. As president try to keep the club organised, I am discovering this is not dissimilar to herding cats.

Been a member since 2017

Rob Sim - Secretary

Alie Rowell - Social Secretary

I am a keen hiker and Munro Bagger, and happiest in the mountains. Originally from the moors of Yorkshire, I moved to Glasgow from the flat Midlands in 2019. I soon joined LMC where I was instantly made to feel welcome, and have been on some amazing trips with the club.

As Social Secretary I'm here to organise fun events such as photo nights and catch ups, including the annual ceilidh and infamous Burns night.

My dog Fennel, a spaniel-cross, is vying for the title of unofficial Club Mascot - she's already bagged several Munros, even if they were in a rucksack
