Red Rose Library:

The club has been fortunate to have recently been bequeathed all of the late Ron Bliss's caving books, sound recordings and photographs. The task of cataloguing this material will take some time, and we are grateful to Pete Mohr, Jim Newton, Mel and Sandra Wilkinson for their time in undertaking this work. Hopefully in future newsletters we can itemize some of the unusual items. Below are a selection of some of the items recently received: To access the full library catalogue go to:- www.rrcpc.org.uk/libraryhome
