Mendip Cave Rescue
The next MCR meeting will be held at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy on Friday 16th September at 20:00. As always, all are welcome to attend these open meetings.
There will be a Mendip Cave Rescue First Aid training evening, to be held at the Wessex Cave Club hut on the 25th August 2016 at 19:00, to be run by Rich Marlow. The evening will concentrate on treating casualties with suspected fractures. All are welcome, but this evening will be aimed towards people who already hold some form of first aid qualification.
On Tuesday 26th July, Mendip Cave Rescue received a report from the police at 11:58 that a visitor had fallen and sustained injuries in Gough's Cave, a show cave in Cheddar Gorge. A small group of MCR wardens collected some equipment from the MCR store and made their way to the entrance, where a further report was received that the injured person had been stretchered out of the cave by members of Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue service. The wardens were then stood down at 13:07 and returned to the MCR store.
