At the club's 70th anniversary a major project was launched to replace the roof on the club HQ and thus secure it as a base for caving in South Wales for the foreseeable future. This is a major undertaking that will involve the club in fund raising and planning activities for the at least the remainder of this decade. 

Roof Replacement - Savings


The roof replacement project is now well advanced and two conceptual designs have been developed. Once budget costing of each design is complete, the preferred design will be selected and taken through to detailed design followed by contract document preparation. It is anticipated that tender preparation, submission and evaluation will take place during the autumn of 2020 and a preferred contractor will be selected by the end of 2020. The start date on site is scheduled to be mid May 2022.

The Beautiful Adventure

A major film of the exploration history and journey through Dan yr Ogof has been made and published by Antonia and Andy Freem. It involved 15 trips with well over 30 SWCC cavers and is a high quality informative 65 minute documentary that is fascinating viewing for those who have or have not been able to visit the entire cave, including for example the diver only Battle of Britain Series, Cascade Series, Mostest and Far North.  

This unique record is on sale for just £5.00, with proceeds going to the SWCC H.Q. Roof Fund.

Copies will be available for purchase from the publications cupboard, or by mail order directly from Andy
