From Charterhouse Caving Company Ltd - [Home] Chairman's message re Covid

Council of Southern Caving Clubs -

Dear Southern Cavers, Well it looks like there may be light at the end of the lockdown tunnel as the vaccination programme proceeds at pace and warmer weather is on the way. I know we have all been frustrated with most of us stranded above ground for the best part of a year, but I am sure we can look forward to greater flexibility to get underground in the not too far distant future.

Weil's Disease - [Weil's Disease] Updated BCA link

Council of Southern Caving Clubs -

Weil's Disease Weil’s disease is an illness caused by contact with the organism “Leptospira ictero-haemorrhagiae” carried in infected rats urine. Rats commonly live in farm yards and near water and it is known that the organism that causes the disease can live for some time in water. There is therefore a significant risk in caves carrying drainage from farm land, stables or quarries.
