Exhibits at the Old Fire Station

Did you miss them?

By Robert Hallmann

At the Grand Launch of Hadleigh & Thundersley Community Archive at Hadleigh Old Fire Station (17th September 2011) some of the Station’s own past was on display.

There were old fire engines from Canvey Island and a display of fire fighting paraphernalia and memorabilia. I hope someone with the knowledge will enlighten us as to what and why and wherefore…?

Smiling Brian Hickey, former Hadleigh fireman and now caretaker of the building stepped back in time with uniform and brass helmet and was a hit with children of all ages.
