Hello everybody.
Christmas has gone and the new year is here, which means time to dedicate all our spare time to organising the festival.
We aim to have a sign up list for the caves on offer by the end of January and T-shirt pre orders will soon be made available too.
Don't forget, if you are coming, or thinking of coming, please be sure to tick the box on the event page as numbers are important.
Thanks again everyone.

It's clearly a work in progress but certainly legible. The only red font was one title.

I can't see any opportunity for people being able to join in digging trips?

We are still intending to include digging as an option to people. As yet, we only have 1 option available to us.
If digging teams wish to include their sites in Mendip cave festival, please contact us and we will add it to our cave choice.

I am sure that some of the Mendip Digging teams would be glad of some extra workers that weekend. Help is always very welcome in LVS and we dig the site most Saturdays throughout the summer months. You are welcome to add LVS to your list.

Can I suggest to any digging teams that are inviting visiting cavers during Cave Fest (or any other time for that matter) that they give the visitors the opportunity to dig at the sharp end and not spend the session spoil hauling or tipping. I mean offering them a session at the sharp end, not waiting for them to ask (they often won't). I feel they would be more likely to want to get involved in digging in future if they can claw away at that lovely Mendip mud.

I do still need to our team (ATLAS) for our dig to be included on the list. It is only just beyond a and only room for two underground at the moment, but by time Cave Fest hits Mendip, perhaps we will be entering .
So at present some of us are standing around by the brazier.

I agree that the opportunity for a stint at the sharp end would be a good plus point. I'm sure keen cavers will sign up for some digging.
If any more sites would like to be added let us know.

Digging options are currently being arranged and will be available during CavefestUK s mendip event.  Updates have been made to the website and submissions now include digging.
If you are among the digging community, please help us to help you and spread the word, as your involvement is key.
Dig workshops are an option we may look to include too. If anyone feels they would like to run such a workshop please get in touch directly at,
cavefestuk@yahoo.com.

Thanks again.

GREAT NEWS...........

The online shop at cavefestuk.co.uk is now open for business
.
We have a small range of T-shirts in a good range of sizes, and most importantly, all profits from the sales of all T-shirts will be donated to the Mendip Cave Rescue.
Please dig deep and see that this event brings a good revenue for the guys who are there to watch over us and help is when we need them.

Hello everyone.
We do hope you all enjoyed the challenges that the snow brought us. As cavers, I'm sure your first priority was making sure we could get a chance to go caving and that the car/van/ truck would make it there. Never mind the return.
It is nice to see that communities were coming together during the short spell of snow helping each other out of whatever drift had gobbled you up unexpectedly.
We do hope you are all safe and well none the less.
This month brings us ever closer to our Mendip cave festival and it's nice to see that local clubs are pulling together to make it all happen. The Wessex CC has given us a whole page in their journal. Thank you greatly for that.
Please remember to register your involvement online and come and join the fun.
Thank you once again.
CavefestUK.

Yes please as we are looking to confirm numbers. There is a staying above ground option in submissions.
Thank youu
