Crew commander Steve Greaves told the Crow: “It’s a great honour to serve our community at any time of the year, but more so now when communities around us are stepping up to the plate.

“Everyone around us should be proud of the effort we are all putting in to combat this awful virus.

“It’s still very important that we stay strong, stay at home, saves lives and the NHS.”

Royston firefighters will be joined by members of the police and ambulance service for Thursday’s salute.
