We met Geoff three years ago when the fire brigade came to put out our gas BBQ wich was ready to explode!
After 17 years on the force, Geoff is the Leading fire fighter at the Cookham fire station (signified by the black stripes on his helmet).
All 10 Cookham fire fighters are dedicated part time volunteers who train for several hours every Monday night at Berries Road. On average the station gets about 400 calls a year and the biggest job Geoff’s been involved with was the Windsor Castle fire when his appliance was the first on the scene at the North Terrace blaze.
Geoff came to Cookham from Burnham as a child in 1971 and went to Holy Trinity and then boarding school in Newbury and Witney.
After 16 years working on the Odney estate he’s recently changed career to work in the mysterious and responsible world of personal security in the music business.
