Uki bush brigade ready for a steamy Full Monty?



TWEED rural firies are ready to strut their stuff in the annual fundraising night which began four years ago with a production of the Full Monty.

Tweed Rural Fire Brigades "Night of Nights" started in 2001 to assist the local brigades raise vital funding.

This year's event will be hosted by Uki Rural Fire Brigade on April 2 and will include entertainment from nine brigades that service the Tweed.

"This event is becoming increasingly popular each year with more wonderful, creative and quite hilarious acts with auctions and raffles running throughout the evening," Uki Rural Bush Fire Brigade captain Darryl Harding said.

"It is a fun family evening where everyone enjoys the entertainment and activities," he said.

Cpt Harding, who has been in the rural brigade for 18 years and captain for 11, said the acts of each brigade were under wraps as it was a fiercely competitive night with the winner named the host of the following year's event.

"It's all very secretive between the brigades and a great social night for the firies who don't often get time to socialise with one another," he said.

"We have a major sponsor come on board - Harvey Norman - and are still looking for more sponsors to help us raise a target of $3000 to build a new double-bay shed at Uki for the fire trucks."
