BIDDULPH residents were invited to take a look around the town’s modern community fire station during a recent open day.
Station manager Carl Mason said: “This new station has been designed as a hub for the community as well as fully functional fire station.”
The new extended facilities at the original fire station, situated in Princess Street, cost £1 million to complete and were officially opened by Biddulph town mayor Ken Harper in September 2011.
Facilities available for community use include:
- Meeting room which can accommodate around 15 people equipped with a ceiling mounted data projector with speakers and a plug in facility for your own lap top.
- Guest access to wireless internet can be pre-arranged.
- Refreshment making facilities in an integral kitchen area with kettle, cups and saucers etc.
- Accessible toilet adjacent to meeting room.
