"GREAT progress" has been made on the construction of the new fire station in Broadway.

A new picture posted on social media by the fire service shows the current construction work which started earlier this year,

Later this month, there will be a chance for residents of Broadway to meet the firefighters who will be at the station and find out more about the profession.

A spokesperson said: "There's great progress on the new Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue station at Broadway.

"Fire Station since work started earlier this year. The new appliance bay structure is going up.

"Head to the station on Thursday, March 30 at 6pm to meet some of the crew and find out more about what it takes to be an on-call firefighter."

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service are actively recruiting at Broadway Fire Station.

Broadway has a population of around 2600 residents, which can easily double during the peak tourist season

Broadway Fire Station was formed in 1897 by volunteers with their first fire engine and other equipment being paid for by donations.

The current station was built in 1964 and provides fire cover for the town and surrounding areas.

It is a retained fire station, so is staffed solely by on-call firefighters, who respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.

On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday, commencing at 6.30pm.
