Not wishing to be out done by our Team Leader, Garry ’I have lots of shiny medals’ Rhodes. It’s with great pleasure we can announce that our Deputy Team Leader & MR newbie Geoff Seddon is to be awarded the Horwich Civic Award. Its one of three awards being made and Geoff who has been a member of the Team for 34 years, is quoted as saying ’the most memorable rescue was more than ten years ago when I found a little boy who had been missing overnight’. Now we are not sure if he’s referring to finding his son Tom at a friends house or Christopher Holmes in an all night search in the Trough of Bowland. Anyhow congratulations Geoff you deserve it. Obviously a fuller report and possibly a picture will appear after the event.
