New to caving (NW), can anyone recommend a club?

(1/2) > >>

DHB:
Hi there. Apart from a bit of potholing with school (a long time ago), I'm pretty new to caving. I've been in a couple of easy caves and found that I really enjoyed it. I'd love to learn more so I can do more varied trips. I'm based on the Fylde coast in Lancashire. Can anyone recommend a club that's welcoming to beginners? I'm hoping to get out pretty regularly once lockdown restrictions are eased, I'm super keen haha. Many thanks, DHB

Hi DHB,

Awesome that you found us here!

Sure they'll be some club members that reach out to you on here, but in the meantime the following links might be useful:
https://newtocaving.com/contacts.php
https://british-caving.org.uk/about-bca/caving-clubs/

Clubs currently are unlikely to have any 'meets' planned until the guidance advises that larger groups can meet (and club huts can open again), but that shouldn't stop you reaching out and asking!

Time to de-rail the thread (in typical me style), but tim, someone from your club reached out to me by email, and I’ve sent two back and heard nothing, can you give a gently nudge  :thumbsup:
