Town seeks volunteer firefighters

Volunteer firefighters are needed in Newmarket and Mildenhall.

A recruitment evening is being held at Newmarket Fire Station on Thursday, May 15, at 7.30pm, when its on-call crew will be training. Watch Commander Ken Ashby said people who attend will “get a flavour for it”.

“We want to hear from people who live or work and can respond within five minutes to emergency calls. It is a challenging and interesting career,” said Mr Ashby, who has been a fire fighter for more than 30 years.
