On the 4th we were out filming with the BBC for their childrens programme: “Against All Odds”. Despite the grotty weather on the day, 30 members turned out to demonstrate their skills. The expected air dates of the show will be shown here when known. This article appeared in the Bolton Evening News with the full story…

At the invitation of the Irish Mountain Rescue Association, we were honoured to send Mike Marsh (our communications officer and an ex team training officer) to their national party leaders course, held just outside Dublin over the weekend of November 2nd-4th. Mike acted in the capacity of advisor and senior instructor on the course alongside a colleague from Calder Valley SRT. Mike thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and the interest and hospitality of his Irish hosts and colleagues in the Irish mountain rescue service. The Bolton Team has previously helped IMRA courses and welcomes the opportunity to meet with like-minded people and drink lots of Guinness! … Hope we get an invite for 2002! An article on Mike’s visit was published in the Bolton Evening News.

Our last incident of November was a late evening SARDA call to assist RSRT with a search for a missing man in the Colne area of Lancashire. Paul and Blue attended (with navigator Ged Clarke), Dave and Chi (navigator Chris Moody) tried to attend, but Dave’s luck being Dave’s luck, the exhaust fell off his van. These things happen! (The search was inconclusive)
In June 2020 we sent over ten fire engines, to a moorland fire upon Darwen Moor as well as a lot of resources from @unitedutilities @BoltonMRT and other agencies attending this major incident incident. @DCCWoods has confirmed that two Lancashire residents have now been charged. twitter.com/DCCWoods/statu…
