Reminder of our ‘Try Caving’ events this autumn

These are an opportunity for anyone who has never caved before to come along, meet some cavers, learn about the sport and try it out. If you know anyone who might be interested (or if your club/group receives enquiries from novices that you cannot accommodate) these are great events to direct them towards.

  • 2-3rd September: Hosted by the YSS (2 days)
  • 30th September: Hosted by the RRCPC (1 day)
  • 4-5th November: Hosted by the YSS (2 days)

If any attendees enjoy these and want to take things further, we have our two New-to-SRT workshops (included in the list above) on 7-8th October and 18-19th November which are the perfect next step.
