The group are pleased to announce that following an approach to Dany Cotton, the Commissioner (Chief Officer) of the London Fire Brigade, approval, has been given for 240FLM to resume her proud position in an LFB station appliance room. After some discussion, it was agreed that she could reside in the centre bay at F38 (L24) Romford fire station located in Pettits lane North, Havering.
The date of the move is not yet set as certain minimum requirements have to be met, however, these are in hand and the relocation from Cambridgeshire should take place fairly soon.
Site meetings have taken place at Romford with the Station Commander and the “on duty” watches and with introductions made the majority of any potential issues have been resolved. Working parties are now being established throughout September to try to get the re-cabling of the ladders completed and the cab interior further along to completion.
It is without doubt a great weight of the minds of the committee, and indeed the whole group, as the current storage facilities are likely to be lost at any time and this would potentially have undone almost 3 years of hard dedicated work, to that end, we are sincerely grateful to Dany Cotton for responding so positively to our request and the crews at Romford for welcoming us.
As soon as the move date is established, it will be announced on this website and the 2 Facebook group pages. In the meantime, those of you requiring more information, please get in touch via the “Contact” page on the group website.
