The Leigh Coastal Walk was followed by a Fire Brigade Open Day.
At the old Leigh Hotel carpark, Warkworth Fire Brigade demonstrated the use of their “jaws of life” on a vehicle.
Later, smoke poured out of the Leigh Hotel. Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade demonstrated their new compressed air foam as volunteers turned the hotel white.
Several times this summer Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade members have used their new compressed air foam truck and found it great for putting out fires very quickly.
Thanks to everyone for their registrations to the Leigh Coastal Walk and their generous donations to the Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade.
Goat Island Coastal Walkway
The Leigh Coastal Walk was held on Saturday 20th April on a beautiful sunny day.
Over 70 people registered for the event and enjoyed the spectacular views of the Goat Island Coastal Walkway. Local businesses donated over 50 prizes so there were plenty of lucky winners! Thanks to all who volunteered to help us on our inaugural Leigh Coastal Walk event. We plan to make this an annual event so keep in touch as we add our plans for a bigger and better event in 2014.
All proceeds from the day are donated to the Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade. Fires – Medicals – Rescues
