Any ex Swansea members around?
« on: February 14, 2019, 08:19:50 pm »
Hey all,
I'm currently in the process of setting up a new student club for Swansea, and was wondering if there are any members on here who used to be part of the old club from years ago (think it got closed down in 2002?)
Just wondering if you would be able to possibly help me find any info on the old club, old logbooks of trips, equipment, surveys etc.
Also, if anyone wants to donate some kit to us, that would be HUGELY appreciated!  :bow: :thumbsup:

Hi

I was Swansea Uni Caving Club from 1993 to 1997. There's a logbook from that time in the SWCC library at Penwyllt.

I doubt there's any useable kit at the Uni now. We used to have a cupboard in the pavilion at Sketty Lane, but I think that's long gone. I've been told that the mountaineering club took the hardware and we never had books, surveys or clothing.

Make sure you get some support from SWCC. Let me know if you have any questions... good luck!

Thanks Rhys, I'll ask to check the library next time I'm at SWCC.
Currently trying to organise some fundraising events for kit with people from the club.
