Fire cuts campaign
23rd December, 2013
As you may all be aware Cumbria County council are proposing to cut fire services in Penrith by removing the 2nd pump.
The Chamber is wholly opposed to such a move and we will be issuing an official response to Cumbira County Council shortly.
We would also implore members to contact their local councillors (click here for details) and cabinet members (Click here for details) to voice your opposition to these proposals. Alternatively you can sign the petition which is present in many local business around the town.
In the meantime the campaign opposed to the cuts are holding a Gala Night on the 9th January, which we hope will be supported by all community groups, including members of the Chamber. All proceeds will go to the Fire Service Benevolent Fund.
