Bruie Plains – Cold Drinks, ABBA and Plenty to Sing About

Bruie Plains Brigade, located 26 Kilometres from Trundle (in the Central West) has plenty to sing about…


The Brigade are now the proud owners of two Engel Fridges thanks to Deputy Captain Andrew Rawesthorne and the VFFA.

In an earlier edition of the volunteer fire fighter magazine, we ran a Photo Competition with a prize of $1000 for whatever equipment a brigade needed. The winning photo was submitted by Deputy Captain Andrew Rawesthorne of Bruie Plains Brigade. After consideration, the brigade decided two fridges would be great for their tankers so they no longer had to drink hot water in the field.

VFFA Executive Members Greg Godde, Peter Cannon and Tony Ellis attended a BBQ to present the two Fridges to Brigade Captain John Boyd and the crew.


The winning photo by Deputy Captain Andrew Rawesthorne of Bruie Plains Brigade was featured on the front cover of the Winter 2015 edition of the volunteer fire fighter magazine.

But wait there’s more to sing about…

Trundle is rapidly becoming the ABBA Capital of Australia. At this year’s Festival there were around two thousand people in attendance and Bruie Plains Brigade played a major part in the Festival’s success.

ABCs Landline program featured Trundle in a story titled “Take a Chance On Me”, click HERE (or the image below) to check it out.
