We were delighted to once again be invited to pop along to F39 Hornchurch Fire Station and support their annual open day.
Leaving our home base of F38 Romford, Trevor Barnwell, one of our 2 group mechanical officers, decided it was definitely time to resume his driving association with AEC Merryweather appliances and got behind the wheel. he smiled all the way there and back!
Although the weather was somewhat unpredictable, the event went ahead and the many visitors were treated to an "up close" inspection of our appliance as well as the current range of operational vehicles in use.
When the sun did shine, the event moved just a few metres across the road onto the lovely green space and 240FLM was once again put on show. Another fine community based event that allows the public to see the old and the new alongside each other.
