Today marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of John Noble, he was my first Watch Manager when I joined the Fire Service. He is also the man we named the Team after. He was dedicated, professional and a popular man. Those of you that have read our Website will know that John died after the Fire Appliance he was in crashed whilst responding to a “fire-call”. Sitting here rowing gives you plenty of time to think, today my thoughts are with John and his family. I hope he’s looking down watching with interest. I also hope we don’t let him down and we achieve what Team Noble set out to do 3 years ago.
