Kaeo fire chief's 50 years service

Kaeo fire chief Lindsay Murray was honoured last Saturday for a remarkable 50 years service to his community. Friends, family and Fire Service personnel descended on Kaeo Rugby Club from as far away as Otago to see Mr Murray – a primary school teacher, fire educator and investigator, community stalwart and notorious prankster – receive a rarely awarded 50-year Gold Star for five decades of service with the Kaeo Volunteer Fire Brigade, most of them as chief.
