Longfield Fire Training Centre

This was our 2nd attendance @ the Stevenage Bikefest in successive years, it being  held @ the Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Longfield Fire Training Centre, in Stevenage. The chosen charity was again the Herts Air Ambulance and the whole event appears to be growing both with public interest and also a few more exhibitor stands. SERV H&B were disappointingly not the chosen charity for this year and therefore were not allowed to collect in their buckets, but the guys managed to talk to quite a few people, gaining some more very important pledges to become volunteers, whilst the mini-moto again proved very popular with the younger visitors to the stand.

The day turned out to be very warm and although only four helpers started the day, more appeared to swell the ranks.

A big thank you to all who helped especially to those helpers who then had to leave later on to go to work, that's the commitment that is taking SERV H&B to new and even greater heights, we are emerging as one of the more complete regions and long may we continue to lead where others will follow in our wake.
