Starting on Tuesday January 8th we will have our first exhibition of 2019 open for you to come and visit. This exhibition will tell some of the story of the Southam Fire Brigade since its very start. The Exhibition will include a series of posters telling some of the stories of Southam’s firemen together with a number of items of equipment actually used by the local fire fighting team, including a real uniform, complete with helmet, axe and other items.
There will also be a video telling the history of fire fighting from Roman times and a book which you can purchase which tells the story of Southam’s Fire Brigade written by Alan Griffin, a one time member of the local service.
In addition children will be able to dress up in a fireman’s coat, gold helmet and belt complete with fireman’s axe, and have their picture taken wearing it!
Come and take a look. The Exhibition is open in Tithe Place opposite Southam Library as follows:
Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings 10:00 to 12:00 from January 8th.
Contact us for group visits at other times.
