The Finchley Fire station on Long Lane was open to visitors today, and after visiting the Grange, Alison Moore and I decided to go. There were all sorts of emergency services there; St. Johns ambulance, the London Fire Brigade (naturally!) and others. There were demonstrations with dogs in rather fetching shoes, information and lots of displays of emergency service equipment and kits.
I have never been to the pastures before, and only really knew about them after a resident asked on the campaign trail, and I confessed to not knowing much about it. I am not, by any means green fingered, but gardening is very popular in the Borough, and we are very good at it in East Finchley, so I ought to take more of an interest. Luckily Alison and Colin enjoy it and know what they're talking about.
