These thirteen are;

  • A 62 years old male Bank Worker, from Atherton (Currently just having joined our Support Group)
  • Husband and wife, 46 years old Project Manager and 38 years old Trauma Nurse, from Westhoughton.
  • A 36 years old male Recruitment Manager from Whitefield.
  • 23 years old female Supervisor from Darwen.
  • A male Management Accounts Assistant, aged 24, from Manchester.

  • A male NWAS Paramedic, 23 years old, from Manchester.

We have also had three previous recent membership enquiries;

  • From another male NWAS Paramedic, having already attended some team Wednesday evening training exercises to gain an understanding of the team, and having undertaken a hillcraft and moorland navigation assessment afternoon with the team.
  • The other two enquiries relate to a very long experienced male member of a colleague MRT in Cumbria, now moved down to this area, and a female Accident and Emergency Nurse.

All the above have indicated previous experience within the hills and mountains, as walkers, climbers, mountaineers and other outdoor interests.

All interested persons wishing to join the team are invited to submit their on line initial application form soonest, as have the thirteen above.

Interested applicants are advised to gain an insight in to the day to day affairs of the team by viewing our daily website ‘News’ features, which will give an idea of the commitment and dedication required to be an operational team member.
