Entertainments and family fun at Raunds Fire Station Open Day this weekend

Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets

Family fun and entertainments are promised as part of an open day at Raunds Fire Station on Saturday (June 8).

The fire station will be celebrating 30 years since it moved onto its present London Road site, with an event packed with demonstrations, stalls and activities for children.

Firefighting demonstrations will be carried out by a fire crew and there will also be an opportunity to see drills performed by Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets.

The event, which will run from 1pm to 5pm, will include an array of stalls as well as sand art, face-painting and a bouncy castle. Food and refreshments will also be available.

Organiser Michelle Bates said: “It’s wonderful to be able to mark 30 years at this site in Raunds with a community fun day like this one. We have many entertainments planned and it looks set to be a brilliant event.

“We hope we will see as many people as possible come along to support their local fire station and help raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity, which is an extremely worthy cause.”

Visitors will have the chance to see fire service vehicles up close, chat to crews and be able to see a smokehouse in action. There will also be the chance to take part in a raffle.

Entry to the event is £1 for adults, but free for children. Proceeds will go to The Fire Fighters Charity.
