In 2003 I lived in a house in Ibex Court. It went on fire and Appledore Fire Engine was on the scene within 10 minutes. The fire fighters were fantastic. At the time there was concern that the whole of Irsha Street might be engulfed. I cannot imagine what would have happened if Appledore hadn't had its own fire station and small fire engine which could get down Irsha Street. Thanks again to the fire fighters of Appledore for all your help.
