June was a quiet month for the team with only three incidents recorded, two of which were linked to the same missing person.

During the Spring we carried out a Crowdfunding campaign to help raise money for a new control vehicle for the team. We raised £11,098 with the help of 132 supporters.

The Holme Valley MRT received six callouts during May, five of which were to assist the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) with various casualties.

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue team received six call outs in April, with three of these being located in the Wessenden Valley area, near Marsden.

2019 Incident #2: the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team has recently returned from a call out to assist West Yorkshire Police with a search for a high risk missing person in the Pontefract area.

The Team was called out at 11.30pm on 27th December to assist West Yorkshire Police with a search for an elderly gentleman aged 83. We were also joined by members of the Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team.

18th November was a busy Sunday for the team, with a training exercise consisted of three different terrain search locations followed by a call out to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a 74 year old lady who had injured her leg whilst walking in woodlands near Hepworth.

Late on the evening of 5th November we were called out to assist Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team with a search for a missing 70 year old gentleman who had got lost during a walk on the Haworth Moors.
