The first week of June brought the Fire Brigade to Shillingstone House to the huge excitement of our grand-daughter and her friends.
The wet winter had raised the water levels and the spring under the house had been working over-time and the cellar had filled with water. The Sturminster Newton Fire Brigade agreed to come and pump it out as part of a training exercise. Two engines were needed to give the length of hose required. Our thanks go to them.
