Calvert Lane Fire Station will once again throw its doors open to the public on Sunday 19 July from 11.00am to 3.00pm.
The popular annual event will have fun for all the family and raise funds for a number of local charities including Dove House Hospice, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Disabled Scouts and the Fire Fighters Charity.
There will be displays, stalls, Blaze Bear and the ever popular ‘soak the firefighter’ for visitors to enjoy. The aerial ladder platform (ALP), boat rescue equipment and of course the fire engines will be on show and the Road Safety Team will have the iCar there for young and old alike to test their driving skills and learn about the dangers of distraction and excessive speed.
Humberside Fire and Rescue’s Community Safety Team will also be at the event with help and home fire safety advice, whilst Orange Grove Foster Care will be on hand to explain the rewards of fostering to anyone interested in finding out more.
Andy Johnson, the organiser of the event, said:
“This is great way to bring to community together and help raise money for local charities. People who come along can have a look around our fire engines and it’s a chance to meet the crews who make their communities safe.”
“Amongst the hotdog stand, raffle and tombola visitors can enjoy music from DJ Jazzy Johnson and have a go on the karaoke. I hope to see members of the local community come down to enjoy the fun, everyone is welcome,” Andy added.
Volunteers will be on hand to assist with parking for what is sure to be a busy event. Please avoid parking on verges in the area and strictly observe any double yellow lines and any local parking restrictions.
The fun day is free to enter and gates open at 11.00am – 3.00pm
