Save the London Fire Brigade Museum

The London Fire Brigade are yet again trying to close its Museum which is a key part of its public face and a means to promote the safety message at the heart of its mission.  We oppose this and are seeking like minded people to sign a petition and write to the councillors making the decision in November 2011.

We need people to sign our online petition, and to write to the fire brigade to show their support and to join our face book group

Then points we would like you to raise are the positive aspects of the museum such as education, its links in the national curriculum, our work in fire safety. Any personnel experience you have had of the museum, its staff and collections. This well help show why the museum must stay open.Please show your support and help this cause by writing to :

About lowdhamstation

I am a director of a small (and very technical) business, a committed Christian, a Reader (and preacher) in my local village church, husband to my dear Frances, am interested in heritage railways, and heritage fire engines. I currently run a group that displays wartime and early post-war fire engines at 1940s re-enacting events and steam engine rallies. O yes, and vintage cars and motorbikes, and we live in a Victorian railway station.
