Bradford Pothole Club Subscriptions

The BPC is covered for third party insurance claims through the BCA membership scheme. For the insurance policy to be valid, each member has to hold BCA membership, either arranged through the club, through another club or as a Direct Individual Member. This ensures that the club’s assets and the assets of its members are protected in the event of a claim.

Many landowners insist that cavers exploring caves on their land have third party insurance otherwise there would be no access. BCA membership also covers us for our annual Gaping Gill winch meet, which would be impossible to run without this cover.

This year the BCA have increased the price of cavers membership from £17 to £20 a year. The price for student, junior and non-caving BCA membership remains the same.

Club subscriptions for the year 2021 – 2022 are due on 1st_October.

BCA insurance has to be held by ALL members of the club. It will be assumed that the BCA insurance premium will be paid through the BPC for all members unless YOU inform us otherwise when you pay your subscriptions.
