Local charity hosts second community networking session of the year

Camphill Village Trust joined forces with Stourbridge Fire Station for the second breakfast meeting of 2018.

'The Breakfast Club' meets each quarter and is open to local residents, voluntary organisations and statutory groups, to offer an opportunity to network, share stories and develop partnerships. 

After a round of bacon and sausage sandwiches and plenty of tea, the group heard from Station Commander Mal Fellows, Christopher Glover and David Boucher of West Midlands Fire Service, regarding the ‘Safe And Well’ initiative across the Borough. Station Commander Fellows said:

“Prevention work is all about keeping our most vulnerable people safe and getting extra support for those who need it from our many partner organisations”. 

Partnership work and networking with local organisations through events such as the Breakfast Clubs, is vital in enabling the fire service to identify and support local residents and people at risk within the community. Dean Barnshaw, Head of Service for Camphill Trust said: 

"I want to say a big thank you to Stourbridge Fire Station for hosting and cooking the breakfast, and to Anthony Ruben for sponsoring the bacon and sausages - they went down a treat!

"We look forward to the next meeting and hope to see you all later in autumn. The date and venue are to be confirmed, so follow us on Twitter for regular updates!"
