Brigade members celebrate service
IT was a glamorous night for members of the Harvey Volunteer Fire and Rescue Brigade when they celebrated their award winners at the annual presentation night on April 22.
Tim Egerton-Green took out the most prestigious award of A-grade fireman again, while young Rhys Landwehr also repeated his success from last year’s presentation, winning the Mal and Marie Landwehr Award for B-grade fireman and Handicap Champion Fireman.
Reece Parton was announced Best Clubman and Chloe Harding Rookie of the Year.
Coach Gordon Whitwell said it was a magnificent night at the Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre and everyone had a great time.
“Our junior side is terrific and we are well-placed for the next championships,” he said.
“Tim Egerton-Green is very deserving of winning the Ron Newby medal for most outstanding A-grade fireman again.
“He has tremendous knowledge and is the most experienced of our A-grade runners.
“As coach for the juniors he has also done a fantastic job and put us in a strong position with well-trained juniors stepping up.
“I hope Tim will take on coaching for the A-grade team over time.”
