The team would like to extend its best wishes to team callout list member Mike Higginbottom, who joined the team on the 19th April 2006, but has had to stand down and retire from the team due to family and work commitments.
Mike has been a committed and enthusiastic member of the team over the past 3 and a half years and had recently completed his team vehicle response driver training.
His quiet sense of humour will be missed in the team but he has promised to re-join once his commitments allow.
Trainee team member Marisa Venables, who joined the team in May this year, has had to stand down temporarily from the callout list membership due a foot injury which will require surgery and rest over many months.
During this interim period, Marisa is transferring to our Support Group membership, with the hope to return to active duty in early Summer next year, her recovery from surgery permitting.
