Southern Wales Mines Practice **POSTPONED**

Postponement of South and Mid Wales Cave Rescue Team mine rescue practice, Saturday 6 May


SMWCRT team members may have already read the letter circulated by the SMWCRT chairman, Gary Mitchell, announcing the sad news of the recent deaths of two long-standing team members, Clive Edwards and John Lister. This may not yet be appreciated by all colleagues in other rescue teams, e.g., North Wales CRO, Gloucestershire CRG, Midlands CRO and other SAR teams that often participate in the mines rescue practice. The memorial service for John has been announced for Saturday 6 May and it was considered entirely appropriate, given the mine rescue practice was scheduled on that day, to postpone the practice until later in the summer.


The SMWCRT Executive will meet on 7 May and will choose a suitable alternative date and that will be announced shortly afterwards.


Kind regards,

Peter Dennis
