SAVAGE SKILLS

Savage Skills at Abergavenny Steam Rally 2017

SAVAGE SKILLS offer truly amazing hassle free entertainment suitable for all ages. His amazing Trials to me have become a drug "I just can't get enough of" whether it is performing in front of thousands of spectators or winning a competition the feeling is so rewarding. All you need to enjoy trials is a bike and a helmet. Everywhere you look there is a possible line to ride but quite often it's not obvious to the naked eye. It's finding these lines and making full use of what's available when there is very little to go at, which I enjoy so much.

"...I have employed the Savage Skills team to demonstrate at events in a business to business relationship, their professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding, coupled with their ability to add value to events. The crowd can easily appreciate the level of expertise required and are keen to push limits of the shows. I have no reservations in recommending". Savage Frazer Coupland. Director No Fuss Events

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 2017 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.

You can watch them as they take part in the Sunday Road Run (starting at 11.00am from the Fairfield Car Park Exit) or parade in the Arena on both Sunday and Monday. You might even see one gallop - a most impressive sight .

 

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.

 Longton Mountain Rescue on the mountainTeams in being in 1965 were, Longtown, Brecon, Woodlands Outdoor Centre Glasbury, Merthyr Police / Civil Defence which became Morlais. 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.

The members of the team are unpaid volunteers, committed to the professional service they provide to the emergency services and the community. This commitment not only involves being on call 7 days a week, 24 hrs a day, but to the training required to maintain the high professional standards.

The Brecon Beacons cover an area of some 520 square miles and much of the park is over 800ft (244m) above sea level. The main summits are over 2000ft (610m) high and the whole area is of varied terrain from open moorland to dense forests and barren peaks. The team is not however purely confined to the mountainous regions, we operate in lowlands and urban areas if necessary, as far north as the southern reaches of Snowdonia and south to the Bristol Channel.
