Clubs are reminded that annual and single-use permits for access to Agen Allwedd and Ogof Craig a Ffynnon are restricted to use for trips led by their own members. As of October 2015 the rule that groups must be comprised of at least 50% club members has been abolished.
A Club is responsible for ensuring its key is only lent to its own club members or to other trusted persons who are known to have a valid permit in their own right.
In case additional clarification is required, the following uses are explicitly not permitted:
1. Loan of an annual club key to individuals or groups from other clubs who do not have an access permit in their own name. A reciprocal rights agreement between two clubs does not extend to use of the other club's access permit.
2. Commercial trips led by members of such permit holding clubs with the specific exception of certificated cave leader training. Adventure groups led by professional cave leaders may not use these caves. All commercial use must be approved directly by NRW (not the MLCMAC permit secretary) in advance of the trip.
