Stokes Valley brigade marks 50 flaming years

The Hutt News
12th April 1990

The Stokes Valley Fire Brigade is celebrating 50 golden years - or is that flaming years?

The highlight of the celebration this Easter weekend will be a parade of 10 fire appliances, including two veterans of fire-fighting in the valley. A Dennis 1923, which saw action after the Napier earthquake and in Stokes Valley in the 1950s, will take part courtesy of owners the Hutt Valley Vintage Car Club. The other veteran is a 1941 Ford V8 ex-Air Force truck converted in 1946 for the Stokes Valley brigade. The V8 is still being used by the Eastbourne Bushfire Force. But the appliances won't all be vintage - the brigade has even arranged for an airport crash tender to join in.
