After nine years of red tape and fundraising the Rockleigh CFS Brigade has moved from a shearing shed, owned by founder and inaugural captain Don Moore and his wife Lorraine, into the new Rockleigh fire station, officially opened on August 5 by SACFS chief officer Greg Nettleton.
Volunteers and invited guests listened as Regional 3 Commander Ray Jackson spoke of the importance the Brigade plays within the community. Mr Jackson acknowledged Mr Nettleton and speakers Adrian Pederick MP, local Mayors and Mr Moore.
Speakers told of the collaborative efforts of State Government and the Mid Murray and Rural City of Murray Bridge councils in producing the building. All speakers were generous in their recognition of the achievements and service of the Rockleigh Brigade.
Outgoing Captain Don Moore praised the support of all CFS, and the work of the Rockleigh CFS firefighters, and thanked the Rockleigh CFS Support Group for their continued fundraising efforts.
