Sep Thursday 26 2013
This evening two team representatives attended the quarterly meeting of our regional representative mountain rescue organisation, namely the MPSRO (Mid Pennine Search and Rescue Organisation)
Held at the usual and long established venue of Rossendale and Pendle MRTs Base / Headquarters on Clegg Street, Haslingden, the meeting attracted Team Officers and interested members from all the constituent member teams of the MPSRO ; namely Bolton MRT, Bowland Pennine MRT, Calder Valley SRT, CRO, Holme Valley MRT and Rossendale and Pendle MRT.
Attending from our team were our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE, (Who has been attending these meetings continually since circa 1984/5!) and Elaine Gilliland.
Team Leaders were also present from Bowland Pennine MRT; Phil O’Brien MBE and Rossendale and Pendle MRT; Peter Goble, all under the excellent Chairmanship of Keith Gillies (BPMRT and MREW Assistant Secretary)
A more packed than usual agenda took place, with many new developments and directions for national mountain rescue discussed, alongside the more usual issues of training, team activities and call outs of note, communications and liaison with others.
The next MPSRO meeting is scheduled for Thursday 21st November 2013 at the same venue, to which an open invitation is made to any interested team members from all the MRTs that make up the MPSRO, alongside the usual attendees of Team and MPSRO Officers who normally attend.
