Chris and Julie chat with Helen Gridley - Recruitment and Retention Manager for Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue

Chris and Julie were delighted to welcome Station Manager Helen Gridley into the studio today, Helen is the Recruitment and Retention Manager for Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue. Helen started by explaining that Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue employ two types of Firefighters in the County, Wholetime Firefighters and 'On Call' Firefighters. Wholetime Firefighters are employed full time at nine Stations in the County and 'On call' Firefighters respond to their Stations when alerted. For the first time in three years a recruitment campaign will take place in August for Wholetime Firefighters and applications will only be accepted from current Lincolnshire residents. Recruitment for the equally important role of 'On Call' Firefighters is a year round task. Helen explains the attributes they are looking for in applicants to both roles.

Leigh's The Big Golf Race 2021 - supporting the work of Prostate Cancer UK

We are sharing this message from our listener, Leigh Williams Prostate Cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK. That's the same time it takes to play three holes of golf. That's why I'm golfing the distance and taking on The Big Golf Race, to keep men in the game for longer. The money raised by this challenge will help fund research into life-saving treatments for prostate cancer and provide practical support to men and their families.
