Group Commander overseeing the Blue Light Integration Plan.
I’ve been in the Service for just over 25 years and to say the time has flown by is an understatement. Previous to becoming a Firefighter I worked for a small engineering company making piling equipment. I’ve had an amazing 25 years in the service having worked, at some point, with everyone in this fantastic team.
When Dotty called me and said “do you want to go for a bike ride, it’s not far and there’s not too many hills” I believed him! LOL. But what an honour and privilege it is to be included in this experience which will do so much to raise mental health awareness.
I’ve been riding regularly for the last 6 years so I’ve had a little bit of practice but this challenge is on another level.
Riding to raise money and awareness for such a worthy cause is reward in itself but to know our efforts will benefit others is truly inspiring.
My role working towards our goal is to arrange training rides, with the coffee/cake stops 😊 and helping to run the finances.
