Pete White has been part of the team at Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service for 33 years, and retires today (Saturday 1st August).

The station stalwart at Fordingbridge has been a huge part of the community during his time in the service.

As well as his vital work as a firefighter, Pete's also played an integral part in some of Fordingbridge's biggest events.

He's organised family fun days for various charities, run the London Marathon, taken on the Three Peaks Challenge and fundraised to get defibrillators installed in the town.

Pete's colleagues have been paying tribute to their friend, presenting him with a plaque to mark his time with the station:

And he got a special message from the control room too:
