Hidden Earth is the UK's annual caving conference, and Hidden Earth 2017 will be held at Churchill Academy near Bristol over the weekend of 29th September through to 1st October. As it is being held in our backyard, Mendip Cave Rescue will have a stand in the main hall, so please feel free to drop by and say hello. Over the course of the weekend, we will be auctioning an original Robin Gray oil pastel artwork titled "Rift Pitch", which has been generously donated to help raise funds for the MCR.

As previously agreed, MCR meetings are held every three months, on the first Tuesday of the month at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy at 20:00. The next meeting was to be held on the 5th September, however, due to a number of wardens not being able to make this date it has been postponed by 2 weeks to Tuesday the 19th September, 20:00 at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy. All are welcome to attend these open meetings.

Mendip Cave Rescue are once again providing 24 hour first aid cover for the Priddy Folk Festival, where suitably qualified first aiders will be on hand to treat festival goers at any time of the day (or night). The festival runs from Friday 7th July through to Sunday 9th July and is held at various locations around the village of Priddy. The MCR first aid tent will be located on the village green, so please drop by and say hello!

As previously agreed, MCR meetings are held every three months, on the first Tuesday of the month at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy at 20:00. The next meeting is to be held on the 6th June. All are welcome to attend these open meetings.

As agreed at the last MCR meeting, these are to be held every three months, on the first Tuesday of the month, so the next meeting should be held on the 7th March 2017. However, due to a number of wardens being unable to make the 7th, the meeting has been put back by one week to the 14th March 2017, to be held at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy at 20:00. 

Note that this will be immediately followed by the General Meeting, which will briefly review the events and callouts since the previous General Meeting and appoint officers for the coming period.
