RRT serve at Chertsey Fire Station

On Friday 14th February, the RRT received a call from the Chertsey Fire & Rescue Service requesting assistance with the catering at the Chertsey Fire Station, for the many Rescue workers. Teams of RRT volunteers were organized to work in three shifts, starting at 9am and finishing at 11pm.

Teams from the Services were drafted in from all round the country, working night and day to try and help the many stranded in their homes due to flooding. 2,200 armed forces personnel were taking part in the flood relief operation around the UK, with a further 3,000 on stand-by.

    Thanks Andy Hart for mentioning the enthusiastic teenager – it was Glenn Kilbey from Hindhead Campus who was having an inset day. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience serving the police and fire service that day.

      I cooked all the eggs and bacon and well as some of the sausages. I also swept the floor and cleaned up the sides and worktops as well as serving a lot of the firemen and police. We worked from 9.30am to 3pm and it was hard work but I really enjoyed it and would like to do it again.

    Same commitment in Chertsey as in those places in Australia! What a wonderful organization the RRT is. Reminds of the little rhyme:
    Whether the weather be fine
    Or whether the weather be not
    Whether the weather be cold
    Or whether the weather be hot-
    We’ll weather the weather
    Whatever the weather
    Whether we like it or not!
