The Cookham Volunteer Fire Brigade.

The Cookham Volunteer Fire Brigade.
On the 6th of September 2008 I posted a little history on how the Village Volunteer Fire Brigade was formed. As it looks as if the Village Fire Brigade is to be made redundant, due in some part for the lack of volunteer members to join in and help.
In the photo above is seen at the old Fire Station just behind the White Hart in Terry's Lane, on the occasion of the reception of the new Dennis "N" Type Fire Ladder & Pumper unit.
"Sir Roger" was the name given to the new fire engine in honour of the benefactor who presented it to the village. It became the pride and joy of First Officer Fred Robinson, who ran his own local garage business, and it received all the loving care as if it was part of the family.
