What does it cost to join?
There is a 16 per year membership fee.
In addition you have to pay a 10 deposit in return for your Hi Vis Vest, Membership ID card and Vehicle sticker. This is refundable on return of those items.

How do I join?
You can get the forms and instructions from here

Do I need a 4x4?
No! There are lots of things you can do to support the group without a 4x4, sometimes we are just on roads anyway, you can ride to help with another member, help fund raise or run the group... !

Are you a single marque group/Land rover club etc?
No! All brands are welcome here. We do attend some 4x4 shows for publicity and some of these are single marque but we try to take a variety of vehicles to them if the rules let us!

What equipment must I have?
There is not a massive requirement the code of conduct says you need the following:
  • a notebook, & pencil
  • torch
  • a first aid kit
  • jack
  • wheel brace to fit vehicle
  • a shovel
  • recovery/tow rope of sufficient strength to recover their vehicle.
Many members do not ALWAYS carry their shovel.

What will I be provided with?
Once you join you will get (in return for a deposit):
  • Hi Vis Vest with 4x4 Response print
  • Window Cling sticker
  • ID Card
All of these are returnable and remain the property of the group.

Do I need a modified vehicle - winches etc.
No! You do not need anything more than it came out of the factory with.
There is a place for 'tooled up' off-road machines but it is by no means the only thing the group needs.
Good recovery points front and rear is an ideal minor modification.

Do I need to be available 24/7/52?
No - we run a system so we know during a busy period when and where people are available and match them to the jobs.

Can I choose if I should accept a task?
Absolutely - when a task is assigned you have the first option to decide if it is OK for you and your vehicle/equipment. Your decision to turn down a task is always respected.
