Working Weekend

September 6/7, 1969.

The last weekend that was set aside for work on the Belfry had just about nil support from the Belfry regulars.  Another weekend has been booked and will be closed to all except those actually working on the building.  Please come along and give John Riley some support.  There is plenty for members to do – repairs to the roof (some though are being done at the moment) and ceilings; water traps need assembling into the sink units; new door needed on the toilet main entrance and many smaller jobs inside the Belfry.  DON’T FORGET THE DATE AND COME ALONG AND LEND A HAND.

Burrington Atlas

Work is proceeding at a reasonable rate on the Caving Report – The Burrington Atlas.  To illustrate the publication we are looking for early photographs of caving parties and the caves.  If any member has any prints or negatives I wonder if they would let Dave Irwin know as soon as possible?

G.B. Cavern

It is reported that there has been a sizable boulder movement between the ladder Dig and Bat Passage.  This area of the cave is being closed to all parties until the U.B.S.S. have completed their inspection of the area.  Reports of boulder movement have been made from time to time since its discovery in 1965.
