Searching times

The West Mercia Search and Rescue facility opened a new base in January on Bridgnorth’s Stanmore industrial estate.

West Mercia Search and Rescue also offer a free online short course in water safety, which may be of particular interest to those who live near water, anglers, walkers and cyclists. Find it at
