A little bit about the branch..
The High Peak Branch was formed just over 10 years ago in the back room of a pub in the heart of the peak district. At the initial meeting about 20 people turned up, and at the time no-one had any idea that the branch would grow so quickly in such a short time. These days they have around 400 members, with around 150 attending all home games a substantial number travelling to all or most of the away games, subject to ticket availability.
The branch still holds meetings on the last Thursday in the month, in venues spread across the High Peak. These venues are generally, The Navigation in Marple and The White Horse in Whaley Bridge, and whilst we do hold meetings in Chapel and Glossop those are the main meeting places. The meetings inform our members about tickets and travel to home and away games, both domestic and european games and pre-season for those who wish to travel together. We try to raise funds for local charities and for the MU Foundation by organising different events. We have our Player of the Month vote, which is administered by the junior members of the branch, currently Callum Vernon is doing a great job, supported by his dad.
We are currently processing new and old membership, the membership fees for this season are £5 for juniors (under 16) and £10 for adults for the season.
