DISCO: Bosham firefighters hold party

Firefighters in Bosham will be holding a party to mark the closure of the village’s station.

The former crew will be holding the part next Friday, May 20 at Bosham Village Hall, in Walton Lane, from 7.30pm onwards.

Tickets are £5 per person and include a hog roast, live band and disco.

A raffle will be held with prizes donated by local business. Attendees are asked to take their own drinks.

Tickets are being sold in advance and are available from Joe Bird who is the retired watch manager at Bosham on 07976521126 or email joe.bee@talktalk.net.

The station closed at the end of March, having been consigned to closure since November after a public consultation by West Sussex County Council, which said it could be covered by neighbouring stations.
