There is a possibility the Fire Station in Hatherleigh will be downgraded, due to government budget reductions. This would entail the replacement of the full size engines with smaller appliances with less equipment and crewing levels. Our beautiful town with it’s thatched properties is under threat. Think what the insurance companies will do if this down grade gets approval. Please see here PDF letter sent to the Consultation Officer (email firstname.lastname@example.org) by our Mayor Andy Gilbert. I beg you to follow his example.
