It takes a little time to organise an awards presentation, but for Doreen Fire Brigade the day had finally arrived.

Many of the members helped to get things ready because we all wanted to put our best foot forward for this special day.
 
Captain Chris Maries was master of ceremonies assisted by Brigade Secretary Fiona Bradley.
 
Assistant Chief Officer Mike Wassing and Operations Officer Brian Wright were on hand to present the many awards to the Doreen Fire Brigade members. 
 
Life Membership was awarded to Ken Bassett, which was long overdue after 45+ years with the brigade.
 
Ken Basset, Captain Maries, ACO Wassing and OO Wright had the pleasure of unveiling the Honour Board that commemorates the efforts of so many people over the 75-year history of the brigade.
 
The following members' service awards have a combined total of 380 years, which is an outstanding effort when you consider that they all volunteer their time to protect the Doreen community.
