Melton Fire Station Christmas Day

It was a pleasure to visit the duty crew at Melton Fire Station to thank them for their service to the community and being there when we call, even on Christmas day.

As well as hearing about the variety of work that they undertake, which is sometimes very challenging, I also learnt about the fantastic fundraising efforts of Melton Fire Station raising over £10,000 this year for local causes. This is an annual fund raiser when Firefighters from the Melton Mowbray Fire station go round local streets with Santa Claus on their replica fire engine from Trumpton, the iconic children’s TV programme.

Thank you to all the local residents and businesses who supported this fundraiser, this is a record amount!
