Thames Valley Hang Gliding Club

A BHPA Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club


The Telegram messaging app is similar to text messaging, but for groups of members.  You can install Telegram by clicking on this link.  The app can be installed on a wide variety of devices including your phone and desktop.  When signing up please use your actual name, rather than a pseudonym or other username so we all know who you are and maybe add a mug shot so we can recognise you on the hill!

Once you’re up and running you can request access to any of the TVHGC groups.  Simply send an email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  with:

·         Your mobile number or Telegram username (see Telegram settings)

-          TVHGC Planning (chatting about when and where the next safe flying opportunity might occur, including XC planning)

-          TVHGC Site Reports (asking about or letting others know about conditions on TVHGC flying sites).  If you want to ask about or report conditions at Avon HGPGC sites, e.g. Westbury, use the Avon Site Reports group.
