At the request of the Newton Field Centre management, a task force from the Geddington Volunteer Fire Brigade set about restoring some kind of order to the churchyard, which had become overgrown with brambles and ivy.
After a viscous battle lasting some 3 hours, the 9 GVFB volunteers emerged victorious (with only one or two scrapes) to enjoy bacon butties coated with brown sauce.
Following the success of last year, the GVFB were asked to man the “Fire Walker” obstacle. This year our involvement was to ensure that the fires were fed throughout the 2 days of the event.
Unfortunately we had to stop halfway through the Saturdays when there were fears that the wall between the jump and the water would collapse. Luckily this was repaired overnight and we were back stoking the fires early on the Sunday morning.
It is with great excitement and pride that I can announce the re-launch of gvfb.org! Many hours of dedicated work on other projects have left me little time to work on this one, but I do hope you appreciate it nonetheless.

I have tried to bring together the three main functions of the old site:
The GVFB celebrated their 35th Anniversary on Saturday 13th April, 2013. Over 90 guests of brigade members past and present and their wives got together in the village hall to feast and drink to the last 35 years.
The residents of Bridge Street have been threatened by floods twice in November and were pleased to receive the support of the GVFB and other concerned citizens- to all of you that helped – thanks. Thanks also to the council for providing sand for sandbags and to the fire brigade for having a look at the drains. The CO apologies for poor dress sense in his appearance on Look East!
