New Member’s Weekend 2016

On the weekend of 5th/6th November 2016, we hosted an event for prospective new members, click here to see the 2016 flyer which was a most enjoyable event had by all who were there.

If you were not able to make weekend, then don’t worry meeting and caving with the Shepton can be done all year and is not restricted to a single weekend event, click here to contact our Membership Secretary, Andy.

The weekend was open to anyone who wanted to try caving and find out what makes the Shepton the best caving club on Mendip . It offered the opportunity for an experienced caver looking for a friendly local club, someone who’s coming back to the sport after a break, or just someone who’s up for an adventure to meet us.
