CVSRT - July 2021
Community Support
 
CVSRT are delighted to have been chosen by this year’s captains at Bradley Hall Golf Club as their charity of the year. 
 
The club’s first fundraising event for the team held on the 2nd July 2021 was a 9-hole competition, with each hole featuring food and drink from different countries. 
 
All those in attendance took the opportunity to sample the delights of food from countries including Mexico and Jamaica, and also had the opportunity to meet two grateful club members who had been rescued by the team in the last 18 months.
 
Thank you again to Bradley Hall Golf Club for their support.
#NationalMapReadingWeek
 
This week is National Map Reading Week which is aimed to help get you prepared for greater adventures this summer!
 
Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team along with Mountain Rescue England and Wales recommended when intending to go out in the hills, to be #adventuresmart. 
 
Ask yourself 3 questions before you set off:
1. Do I know what the weather will be like?
2. Do I have the right gear?
3. Do I have the knowledge & skills for the day?
 
The technology available today is fantastic, but it can fail us by locking up, loosing signal or can run out of battery so we always recommended taking a map and compass with you and have the skills to use them.
 
With the summer holidays approaching why not make the most of the outdoors and if you have children take them along and look to to inspire the next generation of map readers and help instil a love of the outdoors. 
@ordnance Survey have lots of great ideas to help get kids reading maps and excited about exploring the outdoors http://ow.ly/GvZm50FoP1p
 
Be safe and enjoy.
Community Clean Up
 
On the morning of Saturday 26th June a group of Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) supporters, with a little help from some of our operational members, made a visit to Shelf, working with Calderdale Council to clear an area that had unfortunately become littered with rubbish.
 
Over the space of four hours a large amount of rubbish was collected and cleared with safety measures in place when working on steep ground. 
 
 The difference made to area was amazing. 
 
CVSRT supporters regularly give their free time to help out, not only our team but the local area too, and this is hugely appreciated.
 
Thank you to Calderdale Council for the donation to the CVSRT.
