Stokes Valley Volunteer Fire Brigade - Brigade History

Brigade History

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Stokes Valley Volunteer Fire Brigade in 1990, a special 42-page magazine, '50 Flaming Years', was published by the brigade and distributed free to every household in Stokes Valley. Written by former brigade secretary, France Tindall, the magazine details the life of the brigade during its first 50 years (from 1940-1990).

50 Flaming Years

50 Flaming Years has now been reproduced in electronic form here on our website, so that visitors can read about the brigade's earliest days of its history.

Note that the magazine has been split into three parts here to make it easier to digest (you may need to read it over multiple visits).
