In an emergency always call 999

Free police and fire service open day in Ashbourne

Posted on 26th July 2017

Officers on the Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team are taking part in a free police and fire service open day this summer.

The event will take place between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, August 5 at Ashbourne Fire Station on Park Road.

People have the chance to watch a road traffic collision rescue demonstration (approximately 1pm), take a look around different police and fire vehicles and pick up advice from Halfords about child car seat safety.

Although the theme of this year’s event is around road safety, there is set to be entertainment for youngsters, a bouncy castle, face painting hook a duck, hot dog, ice cream, tea, coffee and cake stalls.

Officers will be on hand to offer road safety and crime prevention advice, and Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa will be at the event to speak to residents about any concerns.

PC Rachel Baggaley of the Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We’ve been working closely with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue to help organise this open day which we hope will be informative and fun for all the family.

“Please come down and join in the free activities while also learning more about the work of the emergency services and how to keep yourself and your family safe.”
