This weekend two NEWSAR team members were part of the teaching faculty on the Mountain Rescue England and Wales Field Skills course. Participants get to learn many skills that are very useful on missing person searches, including tracking people from the signs they leave behind such as foot prints and disturbed vegetation.

Mayor of Mold Cllr Tim Maunders with team members and Supporters at the Mold Food and Drink festival. Thanks again for the opportunity to have a stand. We had the chance to engage with hundreds of local people to explain what we do, including the unexpected things like missing person searches and flood rescue. We also raised nearly £400 from donations and sales of items.

The team was called on Sunday morning to locate a man missing from the Abergele area. Team members carried out searches in rural areas over several hours. The missing man was located later in the day outside of our search area.
