Our big Christmas event took place this year on Sunday 2nd December with lots of attractions. Once again we had a funfair, mini fire engine rides around the yard and the famous musical fire engine complete with snow, courtesy of our friends in Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. Santa himself also paid us a visit and spent some time with the younger visitors in his special grotto. A special treat this year was the public debut of our newly-restored 1910 steam fire engine "George V," operating in full steam for the first time since its major refurbishment.
”To explore, preserve and make accessible the history of fire, fire engineering and the fire and rescue services in the Greater Manchester region and, through our collections and resources, to further the education and promotion of fire safety in the community.”
The Museum is currently trying to raise £100,000 towards the next stage of our major relocation project. Can you help by means of a donation to our Paypal account ? If so, click the DONATE button now. Thank you!
