Parks N Peaks field days

The PARG held its first Parks n Peaks field day at the end of last year, with members achieving numerous contacts. Following this successful day and positive feedback we now hold Two-Hour Field Days about every six weeks.

There are many parks and recreational areas to choose from and loads of information, on the Parks N Peaks website.
