On Wednesday evening North Wales Police requested our assistance in the search for a teenager missing in a rural area south of Abergele. The team sent four vehicles and over 20 members were on the way. The area contained some significant rivers/streams that were in flood so we were prepared to deploy our Swift Water Rescue team members to search river banks. Fortunately as the first team members arrived at the site the teenager was located safe and well by Police Officers and we stood down.If you want to help the team to recover the cost of the diesel used please consider following the link and making a donation.

Early on Thursday morning NEWSAR was asked to prepare to assist North Wales Police with their activities dealing with the recent significant rainfall and associated potential flooding.The team has remained at heightened readiness for the last 36 hours and is still available to assist if needed.At our request all the other North Wales Mountain Rescue Association teams invoked well rehearsed plans to come over to assist in NE Wales should the need arise.Fortunately our assistance was not needed with large scale property flooding, although our thoughts are with those people who have experienced damage to their homes.File pictures from water rescue practice.

Earlier today NEWSAR Team Members and Supporters were delighted to visit Airbus at Broughton. Airbus employees have selected NEWSAR plus 4 other local charities to support during the year. We had the opportunity to meet employees and talk about the work NEWSAR does in the community.
We would like to thank everyone at Airbus for the very warm welcome and we look forward to working with you all on volunteering and fundraising projects.
