Shropshire firefighters have issued an invitation to members of the public to join them at the fire service’s first ever Christmas Ball next month (Dec).
“We have never held a Christmas Ball before and so we decided it would be great to share the first one with the people we serve,” said one of the event’s organisers, Emily Hodson, a technical support officer based at Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Shrewsbury headquarters.
The £25-a-head event, which includes a three-course meal, a jazz singer, a disco and a magician, is being held at Netley Hall, Dorrington, on Saturday, 1 December and all proceeds from the event will go to the Fire Fighters Charity.
“There is a close relationship between the fire service and the people of Shropshire and this is an opportunity for firefighters and members of the public to get together in a social setting for the very first time,” Emily added.
Emily Hodson and her firefighter colleague and co-organiser, Kat Frost, will be happy to hear from anyone who would like to attend the Ball. Emily can be contacted on 01743 260245, Kat Frost on 07876 493405.
