THREE Bideford fire fighters who recently left the station have been awarded for nearly 70 years of experience between them.

Alan Pearce retired after a career of 35 years in the fire service, and was awarded a chrome-coated axe for his dedication.

Steve Fisher, who served 15 years as a retained fire fighter and is now working full time at Barnstaple Fire Station, and Steve Hillman, who served 20 years, were also recognised.

They both received a decanter specially made for them at Dartington Crystal.

Bruce Lesslie, station commander at Bideford, said the evening at Bideford Angling Club was a success and attended by friends, past and current colleagues.

He said: “I’d like to thank them for the service they have given to the fire brigade as well as the town of Bideford over 70 years of service between them.”
