📣 𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗠𝗨𝗡𝗜𝗧𝗬 | 🧡 Today, we remember firefighters John Davies and David Morris who tragically lost their lives 30 years ago today, fighting one of the largest fires the city of Hereford has ever seen🧡


Firefighters John Davies from Leominster, 34, and David Morris from Hereford, 35, both died when they became trapped by a fallen ceiling at the factory. They were among the 130 firefighters who attended the fire at the old ‘Sun Valley’ factory on Grandstand Road, Hereford on the 6th September 1993.


At 11:44, exactly 30 years on from the time of the call about the fire, Hereford Fire Station crews will be holding a parade at the St Owen Street fire station. Then, at the Lady Arbour Gardens at Hereford Cathedral at 3pm, dignitaries including the mayors of Leominster and Hereford, the chairman and vice-chairman of Hereford & Worcester Fire Authority and the Chief Fire Officer will attend a memorial parade when a wreath will be placed at the memorial plaque.
