Our Vehicle has arrived

The majority of our SSEPD resilience Fund money has been spent on the purchase of a 4x4 Great Wall Steed. It arrived by our container this morning and has already been pressed into service helping move cones and barriers around in preparation for the Civil War Re-enactment Event this weekend where we will be crowd marshalling.

Here are a few shots:

Won't be long until it is liveried up and ready for use. We are currently arranging a training programme for its safe use

DEFRA Flood Water training session

A huge thank you to Dave Dunford from Serve On for putting us through our paces on our DEFRA flood water awareness training. It was great for both experienced volunteers to refresh their skills as well as giving new members a chance to pick up these valuable life saving skills.

We were also please to welcome The British Transport Police from Bath Spa who came to observe what we were about. A really good turn out of 13 volunteers tonight with plenty of members of the public stopping and observing us. Really helps to raise our profile in the community

Its a busy week for the volunteers with Crowd marshalling this weekend for the civil war society event and our 4x4 vehicle being delivered on Friday. Great times ahead!
