Soham’s longest-serving firefighter has been commended for reaching a “remarkable achievement” of 40 years.
Having started his career on June 26 1980, Paul Fordham’s monumental milestone was recognised this week at Soham Community Fire Station.
Over the years Paul has played a “vital role in serving his local community” throughout his time as well as helping with the development of fellow crew members past and present.
“Congratulations Paul on your truly remarkable achievement and thank you for your service, hard work and commitment - long may it continue,” said a Cambs Fire & Rescue Service spokesman.
Janet Evans said on social media: “Congratulations on your long service. You fire men and women do a fantastic job. Well done.”
