- Belgrave Fire Brigade Centenary
2023 is set to be a big year for the Brigade as it celebrates its 100th Birthday.
We intend to establish an online collection and overhaul our physical collection of memorabilia. The brigade will also produce an historical book based on the last 25 years.
This is a unique opportunity for you to share your memories – we know there are a lot out there.
With many of us spending more time at home, there is a fantastic opportunity to dust out the old photo albums and scramble through the attic. Maybe grandad’s old chest has some hidden treasures that need to see the light of day. We are on the lookout for photos, historical records, memorabilia, memories, anecdotes (the funnier the better) and stories whether written or oral; anything that contributes to capturing brigade and community history.
If you want to take part, submissions can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org or ring James on 0466 249409 to arrange a contact-free drop off or pick up. All contributions will be catalogued to ensure safe return and accredited appropriately if published.
