“A big thank you to the Rose and Crown for having us and to the many motorists who came out to support this worthwhile charity.

“We spoke to lots of people about joining the service and would encourage anyone who is thinking about becoming an on-call firefighter in Manea to get in touch with our recruitment team.”
