Hello everyone just was wondering will there be a additnow 2021 Calendar? If so is there going to be a opportunity to enter photos to be on this , obviously by voting or judges ?

I see there has not been a photo competition either for a long time now sadly ,not sure why this stopped as I was not a member then .


Thanks in anticipation for your answers Thumbs Up

Just as a thought would people think simple donations to a suitable cause or causes could be an alternative for this year?

Time enough for a voting system and and some method of allowing monies to be given.

Cambrian Mines Trust has been recipient twice, so a crowdfunding solution with promotion on here is in mind.

Usually what happens is the proceeds are split between a preservation type group and a cave rescue group. For example the Rescue Team I belong to used the donation to buy fittings for our Larkin Frame.

I am sad to hear that. I usually buy two, one for me, and another for a friend.

First instance was a partial reimbursement to me personally of the legal fees involved with the purchase of the lands, the second was towards essential underground works required to save access to the skipway. The details of the work are all on here under Cwmystwyth and CMT work days.
