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). This year the festival runs from Friday 6th July through to Sunday 8th 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!

The next MCR General Meeting will be held at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy at 20:00 on Saturday 17th March 2018. All are welcome to come along to the meeting, which will briefly review the events and callouts since the previous General Meeting in 2017 and appoint officers for the coming period.

As agreed at the last MCR meeting, the next MCR meeting will be held one week earlier than originally planned, on Tuesday the 27th of February at the Hunters Lodge Inn, Priddy at 20:00. All are welcome to attend these open meetings.

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 5th December. All are welcome to attend these open meetings.

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.
