This evening I was getting my kit ready for tomorrow. I’m off to Worthing to help them with their Charity Car Wash in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity. Afterwards, I’m planning on popping into Littlehampton Fire Station as someone mentioned that  it’s their open day.

I put my plans on Twitter, where my friends from Fordingbridge noticed that Littlehampton was station number 47 in West Sussex. In it self that’s not significant,BUT, Fordingbridge is Station number 47 in Hampshire. So we decided to find out how many Fire Station number 47 there are out there and see if we could get them all together on Twitter. And to see if we could get #ChallengeStation47 trending.
