Title: Leader trips for visiting Belgian Cavers
Post by: bill chadwick on July 11, 2019, 01:19:51 pm
We have a group of Belgian cavers staying at the MCG from 24th July till the 4th August. A few of them made a recce trip last year - photo attached.

They will make many of their own trips but would like to visit a few Leader only caves, probably on a weekday. They are fixed up for Reservoir Hole but would like a Cuthbert's or Fairy trip.

If any one can help, please reply here or email secretary@mendipcavinggroup.org.uk

Thanks,

Bill Chadwick

The Belgians confirm they would like a Shatter Trip.

Are you able to offer them a date during the week 29th July to 2nd August?

Thanks again,

Bill Chadwick - MCG Secretary.

I will be at Fairy Cave Quarry for the Shatter trip at about 10.30 am on Tuesday. I presume that they have transport as I will not be in my own car.

Phone number noted.
