The Cinnamon Trust Briton Ferry

news: 120159-Beauty.jpgThe Cinnamon Trust is the national charity whose wonderful volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care.  

We urgently need dog walking volunteers for a resident of Briton Ferry and their lovely 9 year old Collie dog who would love to go for a good walk. If anyone would like to volunteer to help this dog we would be delighted to hear from them. 

What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older eventually affects our ability to look after our four legged companions?  

A large number of elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets, feeling that their only option is to rehome them, this is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together. We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays. 

We always need new volunteers so even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you. Please call during office hours 01736 758707 or  email us at volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk  or check  out our website for more details www.cinnamon.org.uk 

 

Registered Charity No: 1134680 The Cinnamon Trust is a limited company registered in England and Wales. Registered Office: 10 Market Square, Hayle, Cornwall, TR27 4HE. Company Number 07004861

Briton Ferry Fire Brigade
Briton Ferry Fire Station 1970sIt is more than 30 years since Briton Ferry lost its fire brigade but now fire service historian Simon Rowley wants to find out about the former fire station and its firefighters.

According to the UK fire stations website, the Briton Ferry fire station was closed down in the early 1980s and was in Shelone Road, the site of the Briton Ferry Community Centre. It was built in the 1960s and replaced the former fire station in Rockingham Terrace.

From 1948 the fire brigade in Briton Ferry was part of the Glamorgan Fire Service. There had been a fire brigade in the town since the late 19th century and possibly it had been operated by the Briton Ferry Urban District Council until all fire brigades in the UK were absorbed into the newly formed National Fire Service in 1941.

Former members of the fire brigade or anyone who has information are asked to contact Simon Rowley by telephone (01425 402430) or by e-mail (simon@fireaidinternational.co.uk).
