Poundland Fire, 23 August


On 23rd August Chingford Mount came to a standstill as fire blazed in the Poundland store. Thankfully, no-one was hurt. The fire, paramedic and police services were all involved in putting out the flames. It was an all-nighter and they were, in turn, supported by the Salvation Army’s incident response tea van.

We give thanks for the emergency services, and those who support them. We call to mind those lost at Grenfell Tower, praying for healing for those traumatised by that terrible fire.
