FIREFIGHTERS tackled two blazes in Wargrave.

A crew from Wokingham was called to a fire in a pile of rubbish in Twyford Road near the Piggott School at about 11am on Thursday last week.

A man told them he had been burning the rubbish when the bonfire got out of control.

A crew from Wokingham also tackled a fire in a greenhouse in a garden in Eastview Road at about 3pm on Monday. They spent half an hour fighting the fire, which had spread to a nearby fence.

Meanwhile, Wargrave fire station is appealing for volunteer firefighters.

The station, which provides cover for Henley, needs people aged 18 or over who live or work within eight minutes of the Victoria Road station.

Retained firefighters are paid and are given full training. They are called up, on average, twice a week, for two or three hours and are required once a week for drills.
