West Wales
Last night seen the launch of the West Wales group with 8 new members joining the Wales team and 6 more applications pending under the control of John Askew.

We would like to thank all those that attended and signed up to the group and we hope to get a lot more signed up soon.

Re: West Wales
Jim (or Mark or Andrew)

Seeing as Global domination is progressing well and I am still on my mission to discover the true coverage of 4x4 Response in the UK, can you confirm what the actual coverage is of Wales 4x4 Response?

Which of the following do you now cover or shortly will be covering? Apart from Powys, i'm never quite sure what areas are actually covered?


Blaenau Gwent










Merthyr Tidfill


Neath Port Talbot




Rhondda Cynon Taff



Vale of Glamorgan


Many thanks

Re: West Wales

I think we have members in all areas not sure about Anglesy though will check with Mark and give you definate coverage.

Even though the M4 corridor from Gwent to Camarthen is covered we are hoping to get a team to take over Cardiff along with existing members in that area.

Re: West Wales
Hi Jim,

Can you confirm that it is all one team as we currently have it i.e. Wales 4x4 Response?

Re: West Wales

Re: West Wales
Cheers mate, I was only wondering because I noticed one or two still have Powys in their signature (Can't remember who at the moment)

Re: West Wales
No probs Bob

Some people still getting used to the change and some of the old members have not crossed over yet from Powys to Wales

Re: West Wales
So the map could look like this?

Re: West Wales
Hi Guys

The situation is that Wales is one Group but due to geographical size etc. we are allocating members on a regional basis: North, Mid, West and South with a regional co-ordinator for each region. We are also trying to get a regional training co-ordinator and fundraiser within each region so that there is a degree of self sufficiency and to reduce the pressure on the centre - it's starting to come together but is early days. We also need to be aware that there are 4 LRF areas in Wales - North, South, Dyfed Powys (Mid & West) and Gwent so we also allocate each member to an LRF area for control purposes but this may change as the callout arrangements become determined for each area. Within the regions there are also likely to be local Groups as having one pub meet for instance to cover the whole of West Wales is impractical but this will evolve as the regional groups grow.

The focus at the moment for the Group is to continue the recruitment programme to fill in the missing bits of the jigsaw and to get the new members through Responder training as quickly as possible so that they can go onto the callout Register.

Current breakdown is as follows:

Status North Mid South West

Volunteers 8 17 9 8

Responder 12 22 4 5

Grade 3 1 4 0 0

Grade 2 0 0 0 0

Grade 1 0 0 0 0

Total 21 43 13 13

I can provide a list of postcodes if Tony would like to analyse specific locations but at the moment I cannot provide the breakdown by county as I don't have county information for all members.

I hope this helps

Re: West Wales

Having frigged around with the spacing etc to get the table right in edit mode it loses it when it writes the post to the forum - hopefully those that are interested can make sense of the table - otherwise pm me and I will send you the data.
