Hoddesdon Fire Station Open Day
On Saturday 29th June 2013 volunteers from the Hertford Gospel Hall Trust set up catering facilities at the local fire station to support the fire fighters in their fund raising activities. The offer to provide refreshments for the day was warmly received by the Officer in Charge Gary Bailey whose comment was “we are firemen and like to be out with the public, we are not chefs”, so thank you.
A sunny day complimented the fire fighters enthusiasm for demonstrating to the public their techniques for saving and preserving lives. Car dismantling, burning tower rescues, and chip pan fires were just some of the displays of bravery and selfless actions that the fire fighters undertake on a daily basis.
Burgers served with cheese, salad and caramelized onion, onion rings, tea, coffee and hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, ice creams and freshly cooked doughnuts were just some of the food that the Hertford gospel Hall trust volunteers provided free of charge to the fire service. The food was sold at very reasonable prices with all monies collected going to the Fire Fighters Charity.
