Names to fire station faces
Dear Sir, — It was interesting to see the photo in last week’s Chronicle of the children’s Christmas Party at the old fire station.
My wife Anne is on the photo, and her dad Arthur Smart is stood at the back on the right next to Alec Hurst. (Arthur was a part time fireman).
On the left of the photo (second left) is Harold Rigby, who always played Santa Claus, as Anne remembers.
Stood further to the right is George Banks (chief fire officer) and Mrs Banks? Among others we can recognise are Terry Rigby, and two of his sisters Jackie and Pat. We think the year was 1957 or 1958. — Yours faithfully,
