Chester Fire Station Visit

Monday 9th February 2004

Saltney Ferry Cub Scouts visited Chester Fire Station on Monday 9th February. Eleven Cub Scouts went, along with three Leaders. Everyone was given a complete tour of the Fire Station, and had a chance to ask questions and be a fireman for the night! The tour was very kindly conducted by Chis McHugh and Paul. Below are some pictures taken during our visit:
