GCRG run regular training exercises. The dates for training are publicised to members via email. If you wish to be included in the mailing list for events, please contact the secretary.

Training days are run in order to learn new skills, pass on those skills to others, and to get group members working together as a team. Good teamwork is vital to the smooth running of any rescue, and you are encouraged to attend these training events even if you think that you have all the skills you need. Both beginners to rescue and the more experienced will benefit from these exercises, so please support the Group and turn up!

In general, rescue practices are held four times a year, in March, June, September and December.
