Visit to team by members of Friendship Lodge 2488 RAOB GLE Ltd

This evening the team was pleased to welcome to our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ nine members of the Friendship Lodge 2488 RAOB GLE Ltd.

Meeting them and giving them a full insight into the workings of the team, inclusive of a full tour of our Base / HQ were Team Call Out list members Chris Tennant, Ana Toole and Mark Parry, alongside Team Trainee Member Helen Rigby.

The Friendship Lodge 2488 RAOB GLE Ltd, have been appreciated supporters and friends of the team for a while now, and held their latest fund raising event for the team, a Charity Prize Bingo Night, on Tuesday 6th July 2010 at the Crown Hotel, Horwich. (See website ’news’ article dated the same for a full report on this excellent and fun evening)

Team member Mark Parry commented after the visit, that our guests made for a very interested group, and asked many in depth questions about the team, and to a person they all commented that they did not realise how much we do within the local community regards our search and rescue work.

Another ’guest’ this evening was Mark Parry’s wife Gill, who kindly turned up to help, or was it that she was trying to find out what her husband actually gets up to in the team?
