The CNCC has been working hard over recent years to improve our engagement with other organisations to benefit northern caving.

A few weeks ago our Access Officer, Tim Allen, was invited to give a presentation to the annual Yorkshire Dales National Park staff forum. Some 140 members of staff attended together with VIP guest Dame Fiona Reynolds OBE, previously the Director General of the National Trust. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase caving to people who have an influence over our caves.

As well as showing some great photos of one of the special qualities that make up our National Park it was an opportunity to highlight some of the caving resources available to the authority from the CNCC and the wider caving community. 

The talk also explained the growth of the cave networks across the area especially the Three Counties and Gaping Gill systems, and looked at future prospects under Kingsdale, Chapel-le-Dale and Great Whernside.

Where could an IRATA course take YOU?

As part of the fantastic UKC competitions at Hidden Earth, I was lucky enough to win the Grand Prize of an IRATA course, donated by SpanSet.


However, after much deliberation (and procrastination), I have decided to re-donate this prize to a more worthy cause: someone who will be able to gain more from it than I could.

Perhaps you are looking for a new career in rope access? Or are you in need of requalification? Maybe you simply want to gain some valuable new skills?

This prize is worth upwards of £700 (:o) and will provide the lucky recipient with a week-long course based at SpanSet’s training centre in Middlewich, at the end of which you will (hopefully!) gain an IRATA qualification.

In order to be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize, you will need to do the following:

1.   Pledge a make a donation to CHECC and/or CRO should you be the winner (you can PM me with details of this if you prefer)
2.   Reply below on this thread to tell us what you would gain from the course and why you think you deserve the prize.

I will then judge the worthiest cause.
The deadline for entries is midnight on 31st December - you could be starting the new year on the way to a new career!
NB. If there are insufficient entries, I reserve the right to extend this deadline.

Good luck!  :bounce: :beer2: :thumbsup:
