The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.
The team was called out at 6am yesterday morning by Cleveland Police to search Guisborough woods for a male who was believed to have consumed alcohol and was lost and had apparently hurt his ankle.
The man was eventually located as having returned home.
He was visited by team members and by personnel from the Northeast Ambulance Service for a check over.
The incident involved 12 volunteer team members plus more on standby for approx 2 hours.
Work is due to begin on a £250,000 scheme of improvements in Eston.
The Eston Town Centre Enhancement Project will include new high quality paving around the war memorial, road-widening improvements, refurbished street furniture, new banner poles and other public realm improvements.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are aiming to have the project completed in advance of the Armistice Day Remembrance Sunday event.
Businesses and residents are being asked to be patient while the work takes place to transform how the Town Centre is viewed.
The inaugural SABIC Eston Nab Challenge Race has been hailed a huge success.
The race took place on Saturday, and saw runners take on a 5km or 10km challenge from Eston centre, up the Eston hills to the Nab and back again where they received huge cheers from the crowds enjoying the event village market and free family fun.
The winners of each event were Mick Monkman who ran the 5K race in a time of 23.06 minutes, and Josh Abrook who ran the 10K race in a time of 48.09 minutes.
The SABIC Eston Nab Challenge Race is a partnership of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, event sponsors SABIC and race organisers Hardmoors.
