Three lucky grough readers have won a copy of the new book published by mountain rescuers to help make your trips on to the hills a little safer.
Call Out Mountain Rescue
Barry Parker of Shipley, John Hee of Christchurch and Wendy Davison of Exeter will each receive a copy of Call Out Mountain Rescue, edited by Judy Whiteside and published by Mountain Rescue England and Wales.
Thanks to everyone who entered. If you’re not one of our lucky winners, you can still order a copy of the book, which we reviewed, from firstname.lastname@example.org for £9.99 plus postage.
Call Out Mountain Rescue is a pocket-sized book which is packed with information about the hills, their weather, how to navigate, how to avoid the nasty biting things you night find up there and what to do if things do go wrong.
It also contains information for walkers how to avoid the pitfalls which might get them into trouble, how mountain rescue works and how to cope with the harsh environment on the uplands which can catch out the unwary.
The winners were chosen at random from all those who correctly answered that the mountain rescue movement is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
