Ogwen Mountain Rescue AndRoyal Leek Lodge No. 1849

In Snowdonia, North Wales, mountain rescue teams from Llanberis, Ogwen Valley, Aberglaslyn, North East Wales, Aberdyfi, and South Snowdonia provide a year-round voluntary rescue service. In addition to rescue and recovery work within mountainous environments, team members engage in Search and Rescue operations both urban and rural and swift floodwater operations.

The teams work at the request of the police and work with the Coastguard Search and Rescue helicopters, Air Ambulance, North Wales Ambulance, and the Fire and Rescue Service as needed. The teams are supported as needed by members of RAF Valley MRT, SARDA Wales (dogs) and North Wales Cave Rescue Association. There are also cliff/coastguard rescue teams at Holyhead and Llandudno.

The Royal Leek Lodge No. 1849 in Bangor North Wales has a close relationship with the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation. Bro. Tim Radford is a current member and former chairman, W.Bro. Peter Price was an active member in the past and Bro. Dr. Ieuan Jones was team doctor and medical advisor for Ogwen Valley from 1966 until 1996.

Also, there are three other members of Royal Leek who have been active members of the RAF Mountain Rescue, namely W.Bro. Don Williams, W.Bro. Jock Buchannan and W.Bro. Brian Madden.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation celebrates its Fiftieth Anniversary this year and in May the Provincial Grand Master for North Wales Bro. Ieuan Redvers Jones presented them with a cheque for £500.00 to mark their 50 years of mountain rescue services in Snowdonia.

At a meeting of Royal Leek Lodge on the 11 September 2015, Bro. Tim Radford of Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue delivered a very interesting illustrated talk on the work of the mountain rescue services which was enjoyed by all those present.
