One of Swindon’s three fire stations is throwing open its doors to the public on Saturday 9 July, and there promises to be something for everyone.
The open day at Stratton fire station, on Highworth Road, will run from 12noon to 4pm, and there will be a range of activities to enjoy, as well as both modern and vintage fire engines on display.
Amongst the attractions will be:
· Firefighting demonstrations;
· Face painting;
· A tombola; and
Any proceeds from the day will be split between the Fire Fighters Charity and Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group.
Firefighter Joanne Evans, who has organised the event, said: “This is a great way for the community to discover more about their local fire station and I’m sure that a lot of Swindon residents would love to come and have a look around. We would like as many people as possible to come along to our open day, have a great time and leave with some vital fire and road safety messages!”
