On Saturday the 19th of October the History Society had its first public appearance. The SFRS History Society was asked to present a presentation to the Fire Brigade Society for their Annual Winter Meet.

The group visited Wellington and Tweedale Fire Stations in the morning with Watch Manager Craig Jackson and then headed over to The Old Shifnal Fire Station for the afternoon.

When they arrived they were blown away with the historical display of old artifacts that Retained Fire Fighter Keith Robinson from Whitchurch had so kindly bought along.

The presentation which I had written was presented to the group by ex Firefighter and bestselling author Mr Malcolm Castle, he was fantastic.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to Mal and Keith for taking time out of their weekend to come and help me on the day – all completley voluntary, so very grateful.

The afternoon was a great success and the feedback was brilliant.
