The equipment listed below is available for loan to members. More items, with photographs, will be added shortly. Here is the full list of list of equipment currently available for hire. Items are generally loaned for up to three months, but we need everything back by the June meeting so that it can be checked over and so that it is available for use at the summer shows. A deposit is required for any items valued at over £100. This will be returned once the item has been returned and checked off as complete. Here is our full policy. If you would like to borrow any of the equipment, please ask when you are at one of our meetings at the Highland Hotel in Strathpeffer, or use the contact form on this website to ask if it is available.
