Providing information about the Troop and its Scouting Activities

Visit to Bowland Pennine MRT

On 23rd November we paid a visit to the Garstang base of the Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team.

Firstly we had an informative and interesting video presentation on the work of the MRT's in England & Wales followed by specific details on our local team.

We learned about the composition of the team and the types of incidents that they are called to deal with and how their attendance is arranged. 

The Scouts then had an opportunity to see various vehicles and pieces of equipment used by the team and to get some hands-on experience of these.

   
 
   
   
   
   

  

At the conclusion thanks were expressed to the members of the team present for giving up their time  and making the presentation so enjoyable.
