The GVFB were proud to be asked to help get Geddington School’s new allotment ready for use. As you can see, our green-fingered experts were as helpful as can be expected and the job was done in record time.
This October, members of the brigade visited the war cemetries and battlefields of Belgium as an act of Remembrance.
This Saturday saw members of the brigade tidying up the Churchyard in preparation for the Summer. Thanks have already been received from a grateful congregation.
Recognition should also go to Fireman Brown for organising and directing the working party. Photos follow…
With two games now under their belts, the GVFB Cricket season is now in full swing.
Last week saw the second leg of the match against “The Doctors”. Photos follow…
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.
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!
The CO and Mrs Co were honoured by the presence of over 25 firemen and their ladies. Many candle lit nights of preparation had turned the village hall in to an atmospheric baronial hall.
Thanks to Section Leader Byers for his entry to the hotly contested Geddington Christmas.
The CO would like to say a “Big thank you” to the 4 support team member, the 10 three peak conquerors,the 7 Snowdon walkers, Jim Harker and David C-J and their wives for their encouragement and champagne at the start of the final leg, to those guys at the start of the planning process for their help in convincing me it was possible. Brilliant!
