Help taking Scouts underground in Mendip
« on: March 29, 2017, 09:17:34 am »
Hello.

My troop is going to be camping within a reasonably short drive of the Mendips from 22 to 29 July.  I realise this is peak holiday/camping time but I've been asked to see if I can find anyone to take them caving during the camp.  I keep meaning to get myself a Scout caving permit but family, scout and other commitments get in the way of following that up.

Is there anyone who might be able to help?

Cheers,

James.

You could try contacting a local scout caving team.

According to google there is one based in somerset and one based in Hampshire.

Come on James, get that caving permit sorted. I'm an assessor with Gloucestershire, and I think Somerset has an assessor too. Plenty of time between now and your camp to sort it out. Get in touch if I can help.
Going down in the woods today!
