The Beaconsfield Fire Brigade has been saddened by the passing of Bruce Adamson our longest serving member and stalwart of our brigade.
Bruce was born in the Berwick Bush Nursing Hospital in 1927 and resided in Beaconsfield with his parents who had a long history with the town.
Bruce’s family served in the Great War 1914-1918 and Bruce worked locally managing Roche Bros Farm which is now a housing estate behind the hotel.
After leaving the farm Bruce and his wife worked as caretakers at St Margaret’s School until they retired and continued to reside in Beaconsfield until the passing of his wife Darla Adamson.
Bruce was an amazing man who had a rare gift of passing on his humour and outlook on life to us in the brigade and to anyone he met.
He was heavily involved in the building of the old fire station and it is fitting that the land the new station resides on was owned by the Adamson family.
Vale Bruce Adamson 1927 -2020
The brigade would like to acknowledge the passing of Jen and Marion, wives of current life member Noel Seabrook and former member Chris Clarke. Our thoughts and support are with these members.
This has been a testing time for the Brigade working in a restricted environment and still being able to attend all call outs.
With summer fast approaching please observe the following:
- Total fire ban and fire restrictions
- Ensure all in your family are aware of your current fire plan
- Download the emergency services app to your phone This is an invaluable tool to ensure you are aware of any incidents in our area
Stay COVID safe and Fire Safe this summer.
