On the 13th of April 2013, members of North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) are joining members of the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team and SARDA Wales to raise funds for their teams by leaping out of a plane!
All three teams are comprised of highly skilled and competent unpaid volunteers who make a real difference to saving lives in their communities.

Operation Corvus finds Directors and CCTV operatives working illegally - Weds 20 Feb 2013
The latest round of SIA investigations uncovered unlicensed Directors and CCTV operatives working illegally, when the SIA targeted several CCTV businesses operating across Northern England.
During Operation Corvus eight CCTV premises in Brighouse, Darwen, Huddersfield, Leeds, Rochdale, Southport and Stockport were visited. In Darwen, two unlicensed CCTV operators and an unlicensed Director were found. Checks later revealed another four unlicensed Directors.
In Brighouse, one site was found to be operating with an unlicensed Director. A London-based Company, which has a control room in Leeds, had no staff on the premises at the time of last month's visit. However, enquiries suggest that the business may be employing a number of unlicensed individuals. We have been informed that the SIA will continue their line of enquiries regarding all the offences found, which may result in prosecutions.
This is a timely reminder for all end users and installation companies to make sure that they use and recommend fully licensed control rooms. Control Rooms which use unlicensed personnel are breaking the law.
