Modern day reference
I was amazed to see a reference on minutes available on the internet (source no longer available) of a meeting concerning modernisation of fire services in the Norwich area on 18th March 2002 to a Ms. P. Husgate of the Norwich Community Forum, so the name did not appear to be extinct.
I hope for more to come soon!
