Get Carl the Snail #Home4Xmas

21 Dec 2015
As some of you may remember, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team were recently deployed to Cumbria to assist emergency services during the terrible flooding that hit the region at the beginning of December.
Whilst evacuating local residents from the streets of Carlisle, our swiftwater rescue team spotted a very special character floating by.  He was saved and affectionately named ‘Carl’ before becoming the mascot for the rescue boat.  He remained with the boat and returned to the CVSRT base at the end of our deployment. 
Now the floodwaters have receded, Carl wants to return home.  He was found floating along Petterell Street, near Warwick Road in Carlisle.  Please spread the word and help us to find his rightful owners… lets get 'Carl the Snail' home to Carlisle for Christmas.  
Get in touch via email if Carl is yours.
