Parched Kingsholm

By John Cowen

Extract taken from Minutes of GRFC Committee Meeting held on 20 Sep 1955.  

"Watering of Ground.

The Captain enquired as to the possibilities of watering the ground. It was decided to approach the official in charge of the City Fire Brigade to see what was possible."

However, subsequent minutes revealed that this idea didn't meet with approval:

"Watering of Ground.

The Chairman reported that requests for permission to obtain services of the Fire Brigade had been unsuccessful."
