Sardinia Report Now Available
Last October (2019) our annual foreign trip took place in Sardinia. The full report on our week in Sardinia is available on our Trip Reports Page.
In the report you'll find loads of good information on caving in Sardinia along with some wonderful photos and descriptions.
Due to COVID-19, the university which owns Selside Outdoors Centre has had to cancel our booking.
We hope to be able to rearrange once the lock down has been lifted. Keep your eyes peeled!
Lock-down Home Training
We usually start our summer training sessions when the clocks change, but due to lock down we can't train as normal.
Ciaran has developed a home working training package for those wishing to work towards their permits, or those who wish to fill their heads with useful knowledge.
A new topic is released each Monday evening via email.
Buffs, T-Shirts and Hoodies have Arrived
If you ordered a Buff, Polo or Hoodie we'll be handing them out when we next see you.
New Artificial Cave at Sudbrooke
Lincoln District Scouts were lucky to be able to purchase part of an artificial cave system from Oman. The project, ran by Brian Sutton, has seen the cave sections safely delivered to Sudbrooke and assembled in Coulson's Cabin.
Successful trials have been run with all age groups and the artificial cave is now open for bookings. Please contact the Sudbrooke Park Warden.
