Agencies came together with the local community on a breezy autumnal day at Jubilee Park in Scunthorpe on Wednesday 27 October.

Hundreds of local residents, young ang old alike, came down to the park located off Lincoln Gardens, for a day of fun, advice and community cohesion.

Local beat officers from Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service safety staff, representatives from Ongo, North Lincs Council, OPCC, Safer Neighbourhoods and many more were on hand to offer advice to local residents and promote new or existing services.

There was even an appearance by mascots Billy the Burglar and Frankie the Fire Dog as well as the genuine four legged k9 Fire Investigation dogs who gave an entertaining demonstration of their detection skills.

As always, the big vehicles proved the most popular with the younger children who enjoyed looking at all the gadgets on a fire engine and had a very short 'sentence' in the police prisoner transport van!

Thousands of bulbs were planted by local volunteers around the perimeter of Jubilee Park to show North Lincs Council’s commitment to green spaces.

Plans are already underway for the next event, probably around Easter 2022.
