Years of experience, responding and co-ordinating


Shaun Reed

Vice Chairman and Responder

I joined the volunteers at 4x4RNE in 2009 and since then have been an active member using a number of different vehicles I’ve owned in that time. I was asked if I’d stand for one of the officer roles which I duly did. The membership then voted me in as Vice Chair to work alongside our Chairman, Treasurer  and Secretary.
Being a member of the response is rewarding for me been able help people and  to give something back to the local community and further afield when requested by other neighbouring groups.

As Secretary, I am responsible for ensuring meetings are organised and minuted and I keep official records for the organisation.  I also arrange the events with the assistance of others.

4×4 RNE means a lot to me.  I believe in them and the amazing work they do.  I am proud to call myself a member.
