Kind thanks for the support today – though not ultimately required, of our colleagues at Rossendale and Pendle MRT, Bowland Pendle MRT and Cheshire SART.

With so many team members being engaged in various team activities today, including training at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ, two SARDA events, a team collection day and our association with the 14th Annual Scout Pike View Hike, combined with a great many of our members being away on holiday, working or unavailable due to family illness, our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE thought it prudent to contact some of our neighbouring teams on Friday evening, 24th April, to request their assistance, should we need it, with any incidents today – Saturday 25th April, due to our depleted membership numbers available.

In the event, we did not receive any requests for the team operationally today, and so the kind services of RPMRT, BPMRT or Cheshire SART were not required.

All the same thanks to Team Leaders Kev Camplin of BPMRT, Peter Goble of RPMRT and Simon Lane of CSART, for so readily agreeing for their respective teams to support us if needed.
