The event, which is being run by Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, will run from 10am to 4pm at Leamington Fire Station, Warwick Street, Leamington. The aim of the day is to help firefighters to raise money for The Firefighters Charity and local good causes and promote fire safety in the home.
The event is free to enter. Those attending will be able to see and take part in a wide range of activities including having a look around a fire engine, kiddies bumper cars, tea cup merry-go-round, cake stand, toy stand, tombola, ice cream van, candy floss machine, and a Firefighters Charity stand. There will also be a local vocalist performing on the day and fire crews will be on hand to talk to residents about staying fire safe in the home. So what are you waiting for?
As part of the event, we are also holding a drawing competition for children aged between 4-8, 9-12, 13-16 for them to bring in and be judged on the day. The theme will be to draw what you think a firefighter of the future will look like. So get your creativity going and we look forward to seeing the entries on the day.
Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Fire Safety, Cllr Andy Crump said “The open day will be a fantastic event for all the family to enjoy. This is a great way for residents to learn more about the work undertaken by the fire and rescue service and to meet the firefighters working in their local community. So please make sure that you come along and join in the fun!”
All of the money raised will be shared between local good causes and the Fire Fighters Charity, a leading provider of rehabilitation and support services for the fire and rescue community.
