A reminder to members that we are assisting the scouts with their night hike tonight - members will have received notes via email.
This month's training session (please note the venue!) will be presented by Howard, G1BYY, and the topic will be "Voice Procedures". See you there.
This month we are back at the Hatfield Fire Station and the topic is "Callout Readiness" - things to think about, do and prepare beforehand, so as to be ready when a callout happens.
We supported this event again this year, working on behalf of St John Ambulance and Ware Town Council, providing safety and welfare communications along the carnival route. Our Mobile Communications Unit was co-located as usual with St John Ambulance at Ware Priory, for what turned out to be an uneventful day.
Committee meeting In Stevenage
This is one of many charity cycle rides arranged by the "Isabel Hospice”, a 25, 50 and 100 KM course starting and finishing at “Bishop Stortford Rugby Club”. The event took place today in ideal weather conditions and we were grateful to have permission from the Cambridge Repeater Group to use the GB3PI repeater once again this year, facilitating safety and welfare communications around the course. The picture shows Cllr Colin Woodward, Mayor of Bishops Stortford, and members of St John Ambulance and RAYNET teams, with our Mobile Communications Unit.
Thanks to all members who volunteered to support this event and our congratulations to the riders, who hopefully raised substantial funds for this year's chosen charities. The picture shows our Mobile Communications Unit, set up at the start/finish area in Oaklands College, St Albans.
