Goodbye 2020!

Goodbye 2020…. don’t think we’ll miss you very much. The team leader, Chris Griffiths, has just emailed the members to thank them for their amazing work this year. In the usual MR fashion we have rapidly adapted to new situations and working practices, finding ways to safely continue to operate and provide our important services. None of that could happen without literally 100’s of hours of effort in additional training and extra kit cleaning etc. Thank you to everyone for the support you have given to us in this difficult year. We haven’t been out at our usual events, but we have had plenty of interaction through social media. NEWSAR plays its part in assisting those in need, but we have worked shoulder to shoulder (socially distanced for most of the year!) with colleagues across the emergency services, so a big thank you to all of them. It’s always dangerous to list organisations as it’s easy to miss one off…. but here goes. North Wales Police, National Police Air Service HQ, Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service / Gwasanaeth Tân ac Achub Gogledd Cymru, Wales Air Ambulance Charity, RNLI, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, North Wales Resilience Forum …and of course the Betsi Cadwaladr health board, specifically Wrexham Maelor and Glan Clwyd hospitals. We’ve also worked with or trained with other North Wales Mountain Rescue Association teams as well. So, thank you to all of them and a Happy New 2021 to all of you! (note: some of these pics were taken before social distancing rules…. remember that!?)
