The afternoon of 7th April saw our fourth call out of the week, with a short tasking to assist YAS with an elderly casualty who had collapsed near Longley Golf Club in Huddersfield.

There were two call outs on 5th April for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.

The team was called at 18:52 on 31st March to a The Duke of Edinburgh's Award party of seven youngsters who had got into difficulty on the Pennine Way while traversing over Black Hill.

At 20.50 yesterday the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was called out to help West Yorkshire Police with a search for a vulnerable missing person in the Waterloo area of Huddersfield.

17th-18th March 2018 was another busy weekend for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 14.30 this afternoon to assist a motorist who had left the road on the A640 near Buckstones Car Park.

The Team was called out this afternoon to rescue a walker who had fallen near March Haigh Reservoir and suffered a fracture to the lower part of his femur.

The dust is now settling after what can only be described as an epic couple of days for the team. The vehicles are cleaned down, kit is hung to dry, team members are getting back to their day jobs, the snow is melting and life is returning to normality.
