Gentle Giants - Shire Horses 

Last year we introduced the Gentle Giants Shire Horses to our Steam Rally and they were a great success. So we asked them to come back again for our 2018 Rally. We hope you really enjoy meeting them again. They are wonderful, impressive animals and Gentle Giants is a most appropriate name for them. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing them at close quarters before you must surely pay them a visit in their paddock near to the Can-Can dancers' stage.

Gentle Giants Shire Horses

Gentle Giants Shire Horse Drawn Carriages are based in Moylegrove, Pembrokeshire. 

Ensure you have a truly magical day and come to meet the horses at the Steam Rally, as they are prepared, including grooming, plaiting etc. These beautiful animals are quiet and patient and enjoy all the attention they receive. Children are welcome to come and stroke the horses.

Longtown Mountain Rescue logoLONGTOWN MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM (LMRT) 

Longtown Mountain Rescue Team was originally formed in 1965 to help people in difficulties within the Black Mountains. The role of the team has now expanded to include a wide variety of potential situations, where the police consider our assistance and expertise would be of benefit.

In 1967 the South Wales Mountain Rescue Association was formed, comprising of the above plus Bridgend Scouts. The Longtown Mountain Rescue Team was an informal organisation, holding occasional meetings with some training sessions, and only rarely called upon to give assistance. In the late 1960's they introduced monthly training sessions, practicing search and evacuation techniques on the hill.

Operating under Mountain Rescue (England and Wales) the coordinating body Longtown Mountain Rescue Team is one of 48 teams operating within nine mountain rescue regions. Each team is an independent charity responsible for their own fundraising and management. The team consists solely of volunteers from all walks of life, with a wide variety of occupations, who give up their free time to combine a love of the outdoors with serving the community, assisting people in distress. This commitment means they can be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as attending the training required to increase and maintain the necessary skills needed to operate.
