Good service recognised
Richard Rollinson was named Matamata Firefighter of the year and Scott Mclean was named Team Player of the Year at the Fire Brigade’s end of year Christmas function last month.
Both awards are given out annually to team members who have stepped up and gone beyond their normal call of duty.
Mr Rollinson, 32, has been a volunteer with the brigade for 14 years and said the award was unexpected but he was honoured to receive it.
Mr Mclean, 28, has been a part of the team for just over 10 years and still loves it.
