Celebrating 39;50 flaming years39;

These Stokes Valley Volunteer Fire Brigade members are gearing up to celebrate the brigade's 50th anniversary this Easter.

Celebrations will include a parade of past and present fire appliances and publication of a booklet appropriately titled "Fifty Flaming Years". The brigade started as a band of residents who saw a need for a fire service in the rural valley dotted with farm houses to fight house and bush fires.

Today the brigade has 21 members, two engines and is in its third station building, currently towards the top of Stokes Valley Road.
