New to caving / Try caving - Host clubs wanted

We are looking for help to provide more opportunities for anyone considering caving as a new pastime.

There is a new section on the website to help with information and to advertise opportunities for anyone “New to caving”.


Are any Northern clubs holding suitable “New to caving” days or willing to put one on that we could add to the website?

Post Christmas, I would like to start advertising as wide as possible.
It would be really nice to have a variety of opportunities to offer people.

Please email: training@cncc.org.uk

Kind regards

I'll bring this up with members of our club. I think Alderely is a perfect starter for folks who might initially say no, lots of dry crawly spaces and impressive chambers etc...
