Dear CSCC Representative,

For a combination of reasons, but including conservation, stewardship and
economics, the CSCC has decided that later this year it will CHANGE all
the padlocks on CSCC-controlled caves/mines. NEW KEYS will then be
required to gain entry to these sites.

All CSCC Member Clubs are therefore now invited to apply for a new CSCC
key. Please provide the CSCC C&A Officer with the name, address AND
TELEPHONE NUMBER of your Club Keyholder (email:
canda@cscc.org.uk; address: Mr C Binding, CSCC C&A Officer, Ty Bach,
Cheddar, Somerset, BS27 3BN).

The changeover of padlocks will take place on one day, yet to be decided,
chosen so as to minimise disruption to trips. The date will be announced
in good time. Our current thought is for it to take place in July/August
when most people, and Clubs, are on their holidays.

The CSCC would also like to take this opportunity to discourage the use of
aerosol-type lubricants (like WD40) on its locks. The lubrication offered by
these products is very short-lived. A light machine oil (such as 3-in-1
penetrating oil) is much better. Difficult-to-open, seized, or faulty, locks
can always be reported to the CSCC C&A Officer. In most instances they
can be changed in 48 hours.

A similar notice is to be published in Descent magazine.

It should also feature on CSCC website News page and (if I remember) on the Descent Noticeboard in due course.
