It’s hot stuff

BRANCHES of the Northumberland Young Firefighters Association are recruiting new members to take part in their weekly programme of meetings and activities.

The association, for young people aged 13 to 17-years-old, is particularly keen to attract new members to its Berwick, Belford, Alnwick, Wooler, Rothbury and Amble groups.

Members can expect to take part in a packed programme of activities including climbing ladders, using hoses, working with road traffic collision equipment and learning about fire safety.

Young people will also be given the opportunity to work towards a BTEC qualification as well as take part in a variety of other activities and projects. Each branch of the association runs one evening each week at meetings lasting two hours.
