Did you spot the amazing team from Wiltshire Search and Rescue carrying out a training exercise on our land in #Chippenham over the weekend?

Wiltshire Search and Rescue (WILSAR) is a fantastic local charity providing specialist volunteer support to the Emergency Services. They are a volunteer search and rescue team who are deployed by the police in the search for missing and vulnerable people.

Their volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Their 50-60 members are all trained in specialist search techniques across all types of terrain. They train regularly to maintain their high levels of skill. We were delighted to host their most recent training event on our land.

WILSAR are a non-profit making organisation and rely on fundraising, along with donations, grants and sponsorship from the public and companies. They receive no regular statutory funding, and are a registered charity. All of their members are unpaid volunteers and they make no charge for our services.
