Keith Thawley Awarded Gold Star
When not on the job for us as a Project Foreman, Keith Thawley is Station Officer for the Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade. Today, at an event put on by the brigade, we celebrated his achievement of a Gold Star Award, marking 25 years as a volunteer fire officer at Stoke. It is an amazing family atmosphere at the brigade so we loved being there to acknowledge Keith’s service. The biggest fire he has attended was the old Majestic Theatre in Trafalgar St, which was then a church and burnt to the ground along with adjoining shops on 6 January 1996 – definitely not a hobby for the faint hearted! Well done Keith!
