Lidster Fire Station opening


On Saturday 27th October 2018 the new Cat 2B Lidster Station was opened.

This was a very proud day for the volunteers, especially Captain John Sturgeon who has been very proactive in getting this station built (just ask our project coordinator from Core Rural Consulting).

This fire station will house 2 tankers and give the brigade a meeting room, toilet, kitchen, office and storeroom. As you can see by the first photo, it certainly is a step up... from the old shed.
