Prince Edward opens our very own “Sandyford Community Fire Station”

Prince EdwardPrince Edward, Earl of Wessex officially opened Sandyford Community Fire Station today.

The Prince proved to be light hearted and humorous, which in turn made the day to be as good as the weather that welcomed him.

Prince Edward made a tour of the building and met a number of dignitaries including Joan Walley M.P. and Peter Dartford, Chief Fire Officer.

The Prince then met up with community groups including the Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association, S.A.G.E. where he asked committee members what their role was in the community.

S.A.G.E. members gave the Prince a small insight into what the committee does for the area, including its ambition to use the community room at the station to offer training to local residents, through its links with Newcastle under Lyme College.

Prince Edward also visited the gym area where he met up with the WEA Trainer and local residents who were enjoying the fitness classes that are on offer there.

It is believed that Sandyford Fire Station is to be the lucky one in respect to it having a high flying Royal to open it.

Before leaving the fire station the Prince unveiled a plaque, which officially opened our very own Sandyford Community Fire Station.

The day has been a most memorable one for local residents in the Sandyford and Goldenhill area and our thanks go out to Staffordshire Fire & Rescue for putting on an excellent show.
