27 August 2021, Not Just for Snow
4×4 Response South Wales – Proves we are certainly not just here for snow!
As we come to the end of August, we look back at what has been an exceptionally busy yet enjoyable month for all our volunteers and responders.
welshxtrem 2021 – August began with our involvement with this exciting motorsport event. We were responsible for a number of important aspects of this event including the management of the track and trace and Covid safe procedures to ensure the safe running of the event. When not on rota we were able to experience the action which was a real privilege, as the event was sadly closed to the public due to limitations caused by the pandemic.
‘Face to Face’ Monthly Meet – for the first time in over 18months we were able to hold a face to face monthly meeting for our members. It was nice to catch up with everyone in person rather than via zoom, however for those members that were unable to make the meeting it was streamed live so nobody missed out. At this meeting we also had a presentation to show our appreciation to our regional coordinator James ‘Wardy’ Ward for the way in which he expertly managed our taskings throughout the challenging lockdowns. Thanks to his expertise along with his team’s professionalism we were able to support our MOU partners and the most vulnerable in our communities.
Porthcawl Truck Show – following on from supporting a charitable truck run a few months back, some of our members joined the big rigs at this event in Porthcawl. Fantastic event with lots of visitors, and another way to tell the wider public what we do as a group. Thanks to our members for representing 4×4 Response Wales at this event.
Sswansea vintage cars how , Singleton Park – After a two year break due to the pandemic, the Swansea Vintage Car Show was back up and running last weekend. Our responders turned up in force to support this popular regional event with a mix of vehicles which attracted a lot of attention. It was a great day out with fantastic group of friends. Other than meeting the public to tell them about our organisation we also held a charity raffle of a signed Mikahakkinen kindly donated by one of our members. We raised over £150 for 4×4 Response South Wales and the winner was extremely happy. Thank you to everyone that bought a ticket to support our cause.
