Annual Subscriptions.

PLEASE let the Hon. Treasurer, R.J. Bagsahw, 699 Wells Road, Knowle, Bristol 4, have YOUR subscriptions as soon as possible. It has been a tradition in the BEC to delay payment of subs, but, in building the new Belfry, WE ARE DESPERATELY SHORT OF MONEY and every sub received makes a difference!

Gift of Rope.

The Committee would like to acknowledge the gift of rope from Garth Dell.

New Belfry.

Wookey Hole.

As most members will know, on Jan 3rd 1970, during a C.D.G. meet, John Parker and Brian Woodward entered 2,000 feet of very large new passage rising some 2  – 300 feet and ending in a boulder choke.  This passage is well above the two main systems feeding Wookey – Swildons and St. Cuthbert’s.  Further developments are awaited with extreme interest.
