Looks like those Donkeys will be useful after all Speleolabs!


Just thought I would let you all know the good news, we have almost secured a new storage room for our equipment on campus. Full info will be sent out soon, in addition to keys etc. Some time shortly I will be asking for a couple of volunteers to help secure the place and transport the kit from JohnK’s house via donkey. (no donkeys will be harmed in this process)

Club Hoodies and T-shirts


The lovely people at ‘Speleolabs’ have kindly offered to design some club clothing for us! Please email J so we get an idea of numbers if you are interested, orders will be taken shortly.
Current ‘Speleolabs’ designs can be seen at their website and will also be on show on the first two caving trips of this term.
Please see our Group Diary and Trips Info sections for more information regarding club trips.
