Campaign to find volunteer firemen

FIREFIGHTERS are to visit every home and business in Goring in a bid to recruit more staff.

The village’s station in Icknield Road is run by on-call firefighters who have main jobs but can be called away to emergencies.

At present, there are only 11 staff, meaning they must work extra shifts to ensure there is enough cover at all times.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service believes another six are needed to relieve the pressure on the team.

Cover is mostly needed during the day, although prospective recruits may be asked to work evenings and weekends.
