Joint Training Exercise with RAF Valley Mountain Rescue Team

Today the team took part in a joint training exercise with members of RAF Valley Mountain Rescue Team who were in the area training this weekend.


Four members of Bolton Mountain Rescue Team met at Anglezarke quarries to participate in rope rescue stretcher lower and raise techniques.

We look forward to seeing them again next time they are in the area.
