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 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 telling 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, and have their picture taken wearing it, and find out what is in the History Detective Box!
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 until May 21st.
Contact us for group visits at other times.
