On finding out Cornerways new maintenance man John had been a Fireman of 35 years, they invited him to come and have a chat about his fire fighting career with the residents. After many years, John had received a long service 25 year medal from the Queen.
John brought fireman helmets and uniforms from his lengthy career for everyone to see and try on. Residents enjoyed having pictures taken with him and hearing about his stories. To finish everyone was invited to take part in a question and answer session.
Residents and relatives had great fun trying on hats and gave a rousing round of applause to John and for all our fire service personnel.
Thank you John for sharing this with everyone at Cornerways, we enjoyed hearing about it too.
