The Bristol Exploration Club, The Belfry, Wells Road, Priddy, Nr Wells, Somerset.
Editor: D.P.Turner

As no one else was very forthcoming when Robin resigned as editor at the AGM it seemed a good idea at the time for me to try out my new word processing program on my computer - so it looks as if you will have to put up with me as editor for a while.  I’ve never been very prolific with caving articles and I hope that I do not have to start now.  What I am good at is pestering people and so all of you who promised me articles - beware!!  As all editors will tell you, this is your journal and it’s up to you to let me know what’s been happening.  I don't mind how you give me material, handwritten will do if you can't type, even on toilet paper (clean only if you please!). I  apologise for the quality of the print of this BB, next month I hope to have a better printer on my computer.

I was sorry to hear of the death recently of Oliver Lloyd, a life member of the BEC for many years. Oliver had considerable influence in the caving scene, particularly cave diving which he ran almost as a benevolent dictator for many years, and I am pleased that we have managed to persuade Mike Jeanmaire (Fish) to write an obituary for the B.B.  I started my caving at the time Oliver was pushing Vicarage Pot in Swildons and can still remember the way he led the trips with authority and thoughtfulness.
