2010 Snow

Part of Scout4x4 is being a support service to Surrey Police in times of adverse weather and need.

2010 really tested this link and saw many members driving over a thousand miles between them assisting both Surrey Police and Sutton Council.

We managed to carry out a search for a missing person, deliver officers to the front line and get essential control staff both home and into work. This ment not only could Surrey Police operate a much more effective service even in the snow but their costs were kept to a minimum as nobody needed hotels as we could get them home and back again.

We also found time to assist a snow bound bride in getting to her big day which mad the front page of several local newspapers and a mention in the UK Chief Commissioners Blog and the Scout Associations official Website.
