1991 has been a moderately quiet year as far as Croydon Caving Club has been concerned. There have been no new caves found by club members and no significant extensions in any other projects with which the club is involved. However the club has not remained inactive. The cottage now legally belongs to the club and boasts a shiny new roof (or at least half of one!). Membership, although not dramatically increased, now covers a wide geographic area including all of the UK and abroad. And the club has been involved in a large number of foreign expeditions.

This issue of Pelobates has therefore been designated an "expedition special" and includes reports on three caving expeditions with which Croydon members were involved this year.
