Brecon Mountain Rescue Team is pleased to announce that they are to host an Open Day at their new HQ for the public on Saturday, 23 March. 

The free event will take place between 12 and 4pm at their HQ, located adjacent to the Brecon Recycling Centre on the Ffrwdgrech Industrial Estate on the outskirts of the town.

Following a decade of planning and raising the initial funds for the desperately needed new HQ, the team launched a major campaign in the autumn of 2021 to raise the remaining funds for the £1.1m project.  This included a public fundraising appeal as well as applying for dozens of grants.  The target was finally reached in the autumn of 2022, and work on the site on the outskirts of Brecon commenced in the spring of 2023. It was completed at the end of the year, and the Team moved into the new building just before Christmas.

Brecon Mountain Rescue Team leader, Dr Rob Powell commented: “We are delighted that our long-held dream of a new HQ has finally come true.  We are so thankful to everyone who has helped us on this journey, and we wanted to have the opportunity of thanking the public and local community who have supported us over the years. Without them, this project would not have been possible.  Our Open Day will give us the opportunity to do that – and show them what has been achieved.

“For more than 50 years, our volunteers have saved lives throughout 700 square miles of mid Wales, and we have never been busier.   Our new HQ will help the team respond more quickly to emergency calls, store life-saving equipment properly and enable us to carry out training exercises as a full team.  It will benefit the region we serve for generations to come.”

The Open Day will feature tours of the building by members of Brecon Mountain Rescue Team, with the opportunity to take a close look at their life-saving equipment and emergency vehicles.  Everyone is welcome – there is no parking at the HQ (exc. facilities for disabled visitors) – but there is plentiful parking around the Estate.
