Forty Years a member and still at the sharp end.
Peter Farrer, of Chapel en le Frith, has been celebrating forty years continuous years as an operational member of the team. Joining the rescue team with two friends in 1974 Peter is the only one of the trio still an active member. Peter has always been a keen hill going member but also served on the management committee of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team for twenty-two years as Honorary Treasurer and after a short break returned two years ago as Fundraising Manager, a post he still holds. Not content with service to Buxton MRT, Peter was also Honorary Treasuer to the regional body, The Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation, for eight years.
Peter said, “It has been a privilege to be a member of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team and to work with so many dedicated people.
