We’re so proud of Amy!

Did you know that, when she’s not serving you with a smile in our cafe, the lovely Amy is a retained firefighter at Pickering Fire Station?

Former Lady Lumley’s pupil and valued team member here at the Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café, Amy is one of the latest recruits to the on-call team. She joined the crew in February this year and has completed training that equips her to assist the crew and will undergo further specialist training throughout the year.

Watch Manager, Stuart Moss (pictured with Amy) is delighted to welcome her to the team: “Amy is one of the youngest members of the crew and has already impressed the other firefighters with her fitness and work ethic.

“We’re very grateful to Amy’s boss, Mandy Avison for releasing her from her busy role at Cedarbarn to follow her dream of becoming a fire fighter. As a rural on-call fire station, we rely on local business owners to help us to serve the community by releasing staff for training and incidents as they occur.”

Amy is one of only two females in the 11 strong on-call crew and is enjoying the challenge of the job: “There’s a lot to learn, but the other crew members are a great support and I’m loving learning more skills month by month.”

Earlier this year, she was one of a team of Pickering firefighters who took it in turns to run or walk continuously for 24 hours round Pickering to raise funds for Ukraine. The event was organised by retained firefighter, James Croot and they raised £635.00.

Keep up the great work, Amy!
