Bromyard Christmas lights switch on - 19th Nov 2022 We will be offering road closure and general support to this always excellent event. Our volunteers will be there at 10:30 hrs for an initial briefing, working through until around 20:00 A long day, but always a good one! Give us a wave when you see us, it’s always good to help out with this one……. Hereford Round Table Fireworks Night - 5th Nov 2022 We have been asked to be on site standby with Responders in suitable vehicles for assisting the Round Table fireworks on the 5th of Nov. This is to facilitate any on-site providers who need traction assistance* before, during and at the close of the event as they attempt to leave the site. ( * if they’re stuck, we’ll get ‘em moving again ) Eastnor Castle - 9th Oct 2022 We supported the Relish Running Race at Eastnor Castle and provided logistics to Mid Severn Valley Raynet in the provision of Radio Comms power from our vehicles to ensure adequate communication signals provision on-site along with opportunities for us to take our 4x4’s over parts of the Land Rover Experience track. A discreet bit of caring - early Oct 2022 Responder Mike; Hotel Echo three seven, made a lovely gesture of kindness that didn’t happen quite as quietly as he intended. St. Michaels’ Hospice social media tracked him down! Thank you and well done Mike, you sum up just the sort of people we are. Read more by clicking here. HE 4x4 Responder Radio Comms Training - 1st Oct 2022 14 of us attended a dedicated training session to improve our use of Zello Radios.

This was followed by Sarsys App training, (our dedicated call-out system), and how we should accept tasks and the correct procedures for booking on & off etc. “Over” Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza - 5th to 7th August 2022 Our attendance was requested to supplement with car parking support, with the provision of mobile observance level marshalling patrols for improved security to protect equipment and exhibition vehicles on-site. This is a great event where we shall be pleased to be supporting our colleagues in Gloucestershire & Worcestershire 4x4 Response. Much Marcle Steam Rally - 23rd July 2022 The organisers requested that we attend the rally to offer our vehicles and driving skills to assist with car park logistics, general site marshalling and any other appropriate event support duties as directed.

This is a new role for us, and our involvement is planned to take place over the course of the 3 full days of the event. Sounds like a good one!

The (Final !?) Paint Runner - Sat 18th June 2022

We plan to be assisting (is that the right word?) for what is destined to be the last ever Paint Runner to support our good friends at St. Michaels Hospice.

This is always good fun and we will do our best to contribute in whatever way we can to make the day a success.

Bromyard Speed Festival - 29th May 2022

It will be good to be back assisting with this tremendously popular event for Bromyard. Our Responders will be helping wherever we are directed by the organisers with general marshalling duties, assisting with the convoy of vehicles, and generally looking after attendee safety. We are looking forward to being out and about again amongst the public in delightful Bromyard, and hope we all have a tremendous day with good weather, and a great atmosphere; it doesn’t usually disappoint!

Christmas Tree Collection & Disposal - 6th to 15th Jan 2022

Several of our Responders collected Christmas trees to help raise funds for St Michael's Hospice. We spent 94 man hours collecting over 312 trees, covering 757 miles for the annual re-cycling/responsible disposal on behalf of St. Michael’s Hospice over 3 days of scheduled collections.
