No problems with a group in Leicestershire, it is still up for grabs ;)



As I see it this is the latest level of coverage (apologies but exact coverage in Wales and Scotland are a bit of a guestimate).

BobWessex
23-11-2009, 04:47 PM
HOPEFULLY Shropshire and Staffordshire will soon be covered as we've had enquiries from both areas-- possibly the formation of one team or two adjacent ones will follow.

Hi Guys,



Happy Christmas to you all from the North Sea where we will be tracking Santa's journey overnight.....



Just for info I will be back home (weather permitting) from 31st Dec departing again on the 16th January for a further 2 weeks. If we are to having a little get together for the Leicestershire 4x4 Response team, can I suggest Friday 29th January or if earlier I could do the 8th January which maybe a little to early in the year for some.



Anyway I have taken the liberty of using National Callsign LE02 :shock: hope you don't mind :lol:

Now then where to get some nice lettering for the Jeep????



have a good one, Regards, Roger.

Simon-Loughborough
24-12-2009, 10:48 AM
No problem at all re members Number (Roger)as me LE01 (( MEMBERSHIP NUMBERS TO BE GIVEN OUT FROM THE FIRST MEETING ONWARDS AS AND WHEN JOINING FEES ARE PAID))I think the 29th an would be good as give us a little more time to get the word about,



Team fee's paid and insurance fee's as well upto 10 members for a start confirmation sent to Tony re this.



Roger I will need a photo of you head and shoulders only Please so I can start to sort out the membership cards (Don't worry about it as I will bring camera to first meeting and do it from there) plus any other people that wish to join.



The first year joining fee's will be 23 break down being admin 5 covering membership card and possible stickers (i am looking into them already) where I can buy them in bulk shall I say and the balance goes towards insurance etc



I have spoken to the bank this morning and have got to arrange a meeting re opening an account (name to be confirmed) hopefully leicestershire4x4response. Trish my wife does not want to be in the call out group but is willing to come to all meetings and take the minutes and try to look after the finances.for the team, But all this will be spoken about at the meeting,



I will be looking for somewhere to have the first meeting ie central to all concerned and at the minute it will be looking like west of Leicester area any suggestions please and if you now of somewhere please go and ask if they would be happy with us using them as a meeting place possibley on a monthly basis (leicester is more or less central to out county so somewhere around there would be good) Rik Jonny have you got any idea's please .



Rik & Jonny I could do with a PM both with your full contact details please and would you 2 like to try and sort out a meeting place between you ????



Well to this end I will wish you all a merry xmas and chat from the 30th onwards as I am away from dinner today,



Thanks for your input and forth coming help in this project.

As I have so much too do re registering the club etc it would take some weight off my shoulders please PM them direct from the main thread

chat soon stay with us we will get there very soon:

I have been in touch with the Leicestershire Local Resilience Forum and advised them of our presence.



Reply from below from David Powell



Mr Bentley



In response to your inquiry, Leicestershire County Council Emergency

Management / LRF Resilience Team operates a voluntary scheme for 4x4

drivers who are willing to assist in an emergency. We currently have 47

volunteers on our dbase covering most areas of the County. It could be

quite possible that some of your Response Team are already on our list.

Our volunteers are normally available to assist in any emergency,

including getting aid to vulnerable people in present weather

conditions.



We would be happy to hold contact details of any other 4x4 groups who

would be willing to volunteer their services.



Regards



David Powell

Resilience Officer





So do any our merry band already reside on this list of 47 volunteers??

Rik-Leicestershire
06-01-2010, 03:17 PM
Roger,



I do now remember seeing something in the Lutterworth Library noticeboard, but it was about 2 years ago before I had my Disco, so I didn't take much notice.



It could be awkward though if they prefer to use their own list rather than get into service agreements etc.



Could be worth pointing out all the benefits as Alasdair has said, national body, training, additional resources, insurance



Perhap we could recruit a few if we knew who they were ??



Rik

Jamie Owens
06-01-2010, 03:20 PM
Hi Roger



I must agree with Alisdair, there is also the issue of insurance, who co-ordinates these so called volunteers? who calls them out? who checks their Road Tax, MOT & Insurance? What back up do they have, if you would like some letters of thanks to show what we are capable of then I will willingly scan them in for you to show your County Council.

Simon-Loughborough
07-01-2010, 02:58 PM
Hi all and thank you for the response on the thread re documents yes please email me matie as Roger will be off to the north sea soon I think. I have had an email from the local landy club today and he has mentioned he is part of the so called team and there has not been much action. insurance might one of the reasons so please forward doc's and I will take this one up.



Rik any joy with a pub yet mate I bumped into Jonny at the mud club tues night and he said about the pub on the A47 near desford cross roads . Can't remember the name of it chat with Jonny.

Rik-Leicestershire
07-01-2010, 04:26 PM
Simon,



The one Jonny is thinking of is the Bulls Head, Hinckley Road, LE9 9JE, its a nice Everards pub. I shall wander up there to check it out over the weekend. If all is well I will post up the full details with links etc.



I asume we are still aiming for the 29th ??



Rik

nigel leyland
07-01-2010, 05:05 PM
I think I would reply back to the Resilience Forum explaining that you are opperating under National Response best practices and ALL your members are called out in accordance with prescribed protocols, should they need any assistance please call the the team controller on XXXXXXXXX. We currently have X units available locally and a further XXXX available from other regional groups of the National 4x4 Response Network, all of which are trained and assessed before deployment, and covered by liability insurance.



Then they can do what they like..... :lol:



And then you can carry one building your team and contacting local authorities etc.

Morning all,



I met Simon last night as he was good enough to come along to Loughborough Land Rover Clubs monthly meet, I am very keen to get involved in the Leicestershire group as are a few others there are 4 or 5 of us hopefully attending the meeting on the 29th.



As a club we have long been registered on Leics CC's LOADER scheme as they call it and up until last year had never been contacted by them. It has allways struck me that this database although updated annually is in actual fact a 20odd year old idea from back when things were far more laid back. Rightly or wrongly I remember reading that volunteers that were registered were covered by the councils PL insaurance but having never actually gone out for them I wouldn't know for definate. Due to my employers I have several off road driving qualifications and winching courses under my belt but they have never asked for a copy of these or even my driving licence or MOT Cert!



I am a firm believer that the Leics 4x4 response group is the way forward LCC might be slow and unwilling to get involved at the moment but at the end of the day that will be their loss and will probably soon change their tune when they see how profesional the group is when it starts working with other agencies.





I'd be intersted to hear how some of the other groups got on when they first started communicating with organisations?

Simon-Loughborough
08-01-2010, 03:17 PM
cheers matie I am doing my very best well 98% so still have a little in reserve :lol:





we are getting there, I was at another meeting last (Madmatt) made contact with me and I went on a recruitment chat , Hopefully there might be a few memebers from fingers crossed ((Matt)) do you agree

The bank account paperwork is to submitted tomorrow Monday 12th Jan so account should be open very soon 3 signitures have been set up on it.



I am talking to people re vehicle ID stickers so they will be all the same style for each vehicle (making us more common) :lol:



I have sorted out the ID cards and these will be issued directly after our first meeting and when you have paid your membership fee's (i will either post them or drop them in my self)



At our first meeting I must insist that all future members please bring there Driving Licence with you plus your MOT for the vehicle you will use within the network. Plus this will apply to all new members across the board. and will be rechecked at renewal dates of your membership.



I need to contact the national trustees re a couple of things but I know they are all very busy at this moment in time so a couple more days won't matter, Then I will give you another update



If anybody has an comments on the above please PM me and speak up



Thank You

If you are going to check driving licenses and MOT's then it might be a good idea to check people certificate of insurance and keep a record of expriy dates so that you can prompt members for a copy when their renewal dates come up!

Hi Rich



Welcome, I follow your posts on the HUBB also from 101 days







its a small world isn't it..............



yes my beloved tiggurr the 101 , still miss him but recovering from a prolapsed disk operation the iveco is so much more comfortable and nearly as capable (wading depth is probabily less on the iveco)

Welcome to the group Rich, http://www.4x4response.info/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_e_biggrin.gif



Nice to see something different apart from my Jeep on here. Never mind the soup, what are you like on bacon butties??? http://www.4x4response.info/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif

GF says my bacon butties are fine, but i don't do supermarket prepacked bacon , has to be the proper stuff (maybe we need sponsorship from my village deli http://www.4x4response.info/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif)



The Iveco is certainly different - but I've always been interested in them since i was pulled out of soft sand by one in libya in 2000. This one has already been to capetown and been shipped to australia by previous owners



It might be joined by a series landrover once i find some work

Hi all yes a very good turn out. we have 10 members on board and I know of 3 more to join so that is 13 from the first meeting how can I say it http://www.4x4response.info/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif I am well pleased better than I expected a very big thank you to all that have join to make our team, Now we can start to talk to the organisations and put our portfolio to them, and start and get some job's in.



I am in need of some national stickers so hopefully somebody will read this and pm me accordingly http://www.4x4response.info/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif as I am unable to find out who has some.



I have been given another idea today of some one else to contact to see if we can go along and do a little stand thing???? later in the summer which will help us to be promoted.

I will look at this before the next meeting date confirm at the same venue (to be updated on leicestershire4x4response.org.uk
