Finding the scent

Stanhoe WI members make a new friend from Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue.

A very chatty group of 36 ladies filled the Village Hall at the February meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI when Paul and Sarah, and Meya the friendly spaniel, came to tell us about the Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue team and their work.

The organisation, which is a charity and is entirely funded by donations, and operates throughout the whole of Norfolk, is entirely staffed by volunteers. They are divided into mobile teams with vans, foot teams, a water team and dog teams, and they can call in a diving team from other areas if necessary. They specialise in “Finding many people from hill to high water”. 

We heard how rescues are carried out after alerts from the police force and fire service, by using digital radios to maintain contact; data from the Grampian Missing Persons website compiled from similar searches, to define a radius to cover; the what3words app to establish locations; as well as ”Herbert” data for vulnerable people from the family involved.

It was a very thorough and moving talk, with the lovely two-year-old spaniel being the star of the show.

The business meeting after this was swiftly carried through with various reminders for members, and reference to a communication regarding the status of the Norfolk Federation.

It was lovely to go home in daylight after such a busy afternoon.
