Tony passed away recently in the South of France, he produced the first 2 editions of Mendip Underground with Dave Irwin, before handing over to Tony Jarrett. He will be missed by the Mendip Caving Group & SWCC:

I understand that Tony's ashes will be scattered on Mendip at a later date. I am sure that the relevant information will be on the various grapevines.

Although primarily a Mendip caver Tony was caving in Wales in the early fifties. He will be missed by many from SWCC - not least for the hospitality shown to cavers by himself and Denise at their home.

There will be a ceremony for Tony's ashes on Mendip on Saturday 1st April, then afterwards at The Hunters at about 2,30pm. More details to follow.
