GCRG Secretary Peter Mason is a Member of the Unite Union and the group would like to extend their most sincere thanks for the donation from Unite of £300.00. The group is currently in the process of expanding its training facility and the donation is to be used to help with the purchase of two large timber beams that will form part of the new section of the facility at its Headquarters at Cinderford in the Forest of Dean. This is used not only by group members but also the local caving club members for training.
