For those of you who have not visited the Belfry recently, the mystery photo in the last BB was taken in Cuthbert’s streamway.

I have included a song for the benefit of our Belfry Boy, Bob Smith and his apprentice, Toby Limmer, who has recently joined the club!!

It’s nice to see articles on activities other than caving (see Mike Wilson’s article).  If anyone else has articles on non-caving subjects as well as caving, then please send them to me.  I am particularly interested in responses to Dave Irwin’s article on the 1968 floods.  It would be interesting to hear recollections and have a few photos so many of our younger members can get an idea of what Swildons was like with the ‘old forty.’

Keep the articles coming. I can never have too many!!

The cut off for articles and letters for my last full BB of this committee year is 22nd July.

Last minute news and dates can be taken until 25th July

The next BB is slightly earlier to work round the bits that have to be published 8 weeks before the AGM (nominations for committee etc.)  There will be a short issue out 4 weeks before the AGM which will contain committee member’s reports and voting forms for the committee, if there are enough candidates for a vote.


Letters and Articles in the BB are not necessarily the views of the Editor, the BEC Committee or the club in general.
