Johnny's eldest son Scott joined the Selkirk crew approx 5 years ago, keeping the family tradition going, as Johnny's father the late Bert Munro served at Selkirk Fire Station for many years.
Johnny has enjoyed his time serving as the Station Manager, which also involves showing group's such as the Cub Scouts round the Station and the Fire Appliance passing on valuable Fire Safety Messages.
John will be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues at the Station, and they all wish him a long and happy retirement.
