Day out with a difference - City of Birmingham FB Stations Tour  12th August 2018 - POSTPONED

With regret we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the 'Day out with a difference - City of Birmingham FB Stations Tour' that was due to take place on 12th August. This is for no other reason other than it is simply not ready (as a result of a recent family emergency which curtailed my society activities for a while). However, I am conscious that there was quite a lot of interest in this tour and I am keen to ensure that the considerable amount of time and research that Steve Dodge has invested into this is not wasted. So rather than rush it and potentially not do the subject justice, we shall be looking to incorporate this tour into our forward planning around the Commonwealth Games hosted by Birmingham in 2022 (and Coventry City of Culture in 2021), when we anticipate there will be a number of events around these areas. Also by postponing the tour on the 12th August this will allow me to refocus my efforts on arranging the Staffordshire Visit on Sat 8th September. My apologies if this causes you any inconvenience.

Hereford and Worcester Visit 07th July 2018

Many thanks to the cohort of members, from a variety of FBS Regions, who descended on the City of Worcester's new, well equipped station before heading out into the delightful surrounding countryside.
Next was a private collection of preserved airport crash tenders, along with a ubiquitous Green Goddess. These were followed by the fire stations at Pershore, the new fire station at Evesham and then Stourport, Bewdley and Kidderminster before culminating with the NFS / AFS Group and their period appliances.
We extend our grateful appreciation to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, along with everyone we met on the day.
A full report will appear in a future Fire Cover.
