Lee meets local Fire Officers at drop-in meeting at Coal Aston

With the local campaign to keep Dronfield Fire Station open gathering pace, Lee met local fire officers at a drop-in session on Saturday morning in Coal Aston.

The meeting was arranged by the local Fire Station to publicise the consultation which threatens the service they provide.  Local officers were on hand to talk through the consultation timeline and to highlight their concerns about the intention to end dedicated fire provision in Dronfield for the first time in 70 years.

"It was really good to meet the local watch and talk more about the threat of closure.  I spent nearly an hour with the fire officers talking through the proposals in detail and hearing about why these plans are so worrying."

"I'm determined to support the campaign to keep Dronfield Fire Station open as much as I can.  We need all Dronfield, Coal Aston and Holmesfield residents to pull together to show how important the retention of Hallowes Lane to protect our area in the future."
