Incident 50 Sat 19th May 2019 17.40hrs. A member of an organised walking group failed to return to their coach parked in Castleton. Other members of the group located the team’s base phone number on the internet and called to alert us of their concern. Luckily a few team members were at base carrying out routine maintenance and picked up the call. Happily, as initial enquiries were being started, the missing walker turned up. It is important to note that as our base isn’t routinely manned; emergency calls for assistance should be put through a 999 call, followed by a request for Police and Mountain Rescue.
