|Ealing Fire Station Reaches A Grand Old Age|
Celebrations for 80th anniversary
Ealing fire station is celebrating its 80th anniversary on Saturday 12th October. Firefighters from the station will be celebrating on the forecourt, where a vintage fire engine will be on display with some memorabilia from the station’s long history.
The public are invited to come along and celebrate with their local firefighters at the event, which will also be attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Ealing. Crews will also be on hand to offer fire safety advice.
Firefighter Laura Noble, who has organised the celebration, said:
“We really wanted to mark the occasion, as it’s really special for all of us at Ealing fire station. Our station has a long history and has been a faithful part of the community since the 1930s – not a lot of institutions can say that! The community is very welcome to come and celebrate our anniversary with us – there will be a few bits and pieces to look at, and rumour has it there may also be some cake.”
Station Manager Christopher Frewin said:
“It’s brilliant that Ealing fire station has reached such a grand old age, and the anniversary is the perfect opportunity to open the bay doors to the public and get them down to celebrate with us. We’ll be on hand to chat about fire safety and we’re really looking forward to having a slice of cake with the community we serve.”
The anniversary celebrations take place from 12-3pm at the fire station, which is at 60-64 Uxbridge Road, W13 8RA.
