Eddie Roach (Potters Bar East): �1,000 to pay for camping equipment for the Potters Bar Fire Cadets, to be used in a national competition.

Cllr Roach said: “The youngsters who are not afraid to volunteer for disciplined training will learn a lot, as well as engage in a character building exercise.

“The cadets will have fun while under training, obtain knowledge which one day may save lives and an understanding of what a firefighter’s work is like.

“There can be no better role model for the cadets to follow.

“It may encourage some to consider a career in a very important and worthwhile occupation.”
