SERVICE: Example of excellence
May I give a vote of thanks to the local Northumberland Fire and Rescue service, which was so prompt in answering my query and concern about the local fire hydrant being workable.
I was concerned about it due to all the traffic of cars and heavy lorries now using the roads in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea.
After my telephone call to the service about this issue some of the fire crew came out and tested the water hydrants on the corner of Gibson Street, Windsor Road, and the corner of Ocean View.
Fellas and ladies, you are an example of our emergency services that do such an excellent job, with high standards.
As a grateful member of the public, thank you for being there.
