Fire Tender Display

Colnbrook Historic Fire tender

Following on from the successful pre-application to the ‘English Heritage Awards for All’  for funding towards the fire tender enclosure, Colnbrook Community Partnership have been invited to apply for the funding to construct a purpose made glass enclosure to house the fire tender. This does not by any means suggest that we will get the funding but we have generated enough interest with the pre-application form to warrant making a formal application for funding. We have been appointed a mentor who will guide us through the application process and has indeed already given us sound advice on completing the application form.  

The Ostrich Inn has donated a space in the car park opposite the archway for the fire tender location.

In the meantime the Parish working group have been negotiating with the Ostrich Inn to enhance the window display and the room that houses the fire engine and the old town clock.
