Fire cuts on the agenda

PROPOSALS to axe Buxton’s second fire engine are to be discussed at a meeting of High Peak Borough Council’s Community Select Committee next week.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service (DFRS) will give a presentation and the councillors’ comments that follow will help form the authority’s response to the proposed cuts.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held at the Municipal Buildings, Glossop, on Monday, June 13 at 6.30pm.

DFRS are currently consulting on plans to axe the town’s second appliance. To find out more, see
