The happy crew of Wragby Fire and Rescue Service went up in the world recently - to raise funds for charity.

They climbed their ladder in Wragby Market Place so many times, they effectively completed assents of Scarfell, Snowdon and Ben Nevis - in three and a half hours.

They clocked up more than 3,000 metres.

The ladder was against the wall of the old butter market which was ‘ home’ to the service before a new station was built in Bardney Road in 1954. They now have a modern building on the Business Park.

Thanks to donations, the event raised £261. Photo: John Edwards.
