Welcome to the Kent Firefighting website
NEW BEGINNINGS OF OUR FIRE FIGHTING HERITAGE
THE KENT FIRE FIGHTING MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN
The museum at Woodlands Garden Centre is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm (last admission 3.30pm). Free admission.
We were delighted that the Rt. Hon. the Baroness Blackstone, Patron opened the Museum. As an aside, Baroness Blackstone’s father, Geoffrey Vaughan Blackstone (formerly Chief Fire Officer of Hertfordshire FB) was the author of the History of the British Fire Service. This connection continues the family connection with our fine heritage.
The successful GRAND OPENING ceremony was held on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at Woodlands Garden Centre with over 300 people attending.
