I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Bromley’s fire fighters for their work yesterday at Hatton Court in Lubbock Road yesterday.
I was in the middle of the Mayor’s budget debate here at City Hall when the update came through on my blackberry, by the time the meeting was over the fire was extinguished and the follow up work was well under way. This is in large part down to the excellent local relationships that exists between the Fire Brigade, police, council and other local groups.
It is also worth thanking the fire crews from Bexley, Lewisham and Greenwich who supported the Bromley team and Rev. Michael Adams from the local church who made facilities available for people whose homes have been damaged.
