Brigade life members honoured at annual dinner 

Four life membership recipients have been honoured at Riddells Creek after sharing a combined 149 years of service!

Some of CFA’s longer serving volunteers were awarded the Brigade Life Membership medal at the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade annual dinner last night. The newly-developed award recognises exceptional service to the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade for a sustained period of at least 30 years.

“We are all extremely grateful to have a large number of members who have devoted such a significant amount of service to the brigade” said Riddells Creek Fire Brigade Captain Dave Thompson. “The newly developed Brigade Life Membership award is just a small way we can honour these members for the service they’ve devoted to their community.”

All of the four recipients are still significant contributors today and continue to serve the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade, the Mount Macedon Fire Brigades Group and/or VFBV.

Captain Dave Thompson and District 2 Operations Officer Darren Eenjes had the privilege of presenting the awards to the following deserving recipients:

  • Rodney Sinclair – 49 years service

  • Marcus Bootle – 37 years service

  • Jeffrey Sparks – 32 years service

  • Don Clark – 31 years service
