After several years of waiting Beachley station is very pleased to announce the launch of the new SARA 3 lifeboat ‘Swift and Bold’.
The official launch day for the new boat is Saturday 12th March, everybody is welcome at the Old lifeboat station, Beachley from 9-9.30 am onwards.
(Postcode is NP16 7HH for those needing directions!)
Our thanks go out to everybody that helped us raise the astonishing total required to purchase the boat; I can guarantee that it will be put to good use.
The boat has been named ‘Swift and Bold’ after the 1st Battalion the Rifles who are based at Beachley with several serving soldiers also volunteering for the station.
We look forwards to seeing you all!

Tewkesbury School show their support!

Posted in Donation, News, Tewkesbury on January 17th, 2011 by Be the first to comment

Tewkesbury School’s annual fundraising week this year raised money for three charities and one of the charities the students voted to support was SARA! The students are keen to support their new local Water and Land Search and Rescue Team. Students were looking to support local charities and after the help SARA provided to the community during 2007 they were happy to help the new station in the town.

Posted in News, Wyre Forest on January 17th, 2011 by Be the first to comment

We are featured in the Febuary edition of LRO! Mark Saville from Land Rover Owner International magazine went for a dip in the River Severn at Arley with a crew from Wyre Forest. He had accepted an invite to see how the crew utilise the two Land Rover MRUs stationed with them.

The story covers several ‘training rescues’ for which Mark played the casualty and loads of information about both the organisation and the two Land Rovers, Mobile 4 and Mobile 6.
