All 12 people who attended Thursday evening with an interest in joining the team, turned up this morning at 09:00 for a full (exhausting) day of mini-exercises, to give all a flavour of team membership, along with kit demonstrations and very basic stretcher handling awareness.
Beyond today all have been invited to a minimum 8 week long probationary period, during which further assessments will take place, and their detailed application forms will be analysed alongside their stated hill experience.
From the 12 prospective members the team hopes to recruit 6 new trainee team members from amongst the ranks of those who attend the probationary period and fulfill all commitments required of them over the next 8 weeks.
Please note, the team not accepting any further membership applications for the immediate future, as we have no operational membership vacancies.
