Emergency services day at beauty spot
A BIG family day out with a difference is heading to Bradgate Park.
The celebration of the services which make up the Leicestershire’s emergency services and support will be heading to the beauty spot this weekend.
There will be lots of fun for all the family, a mini fire engine for the children to ride on, plus vintage fire engines to look at and learn more about.
Visitors can meet all the emergency services and learn more about the important work they do. Admission to the event is free.
The event takes place on Sunday, May 20, from 11am to 4pm. Car parking for the day is £4 pay and display (cash only).
The event is held on the Deer Meadow at the heart of the park which adjoins the main carriageway by the Deer Barns.
In past years groups at the event have included the Fire Brigade Museum Society, Leicestershire Police, Leicestershire Search and Rescue, fire cadets, the Air Ambulance, Leics and Rutland 4x4 Response, the Red Cross, the National Emergency Services Museum, the Green Goddess, Abbey Pumping Station with Old Dennis, and the Blue Light Vehicle Preservation Society.
This year the event also welcomes the RNLI, Charnwood Community 1st Responders, Leicestershire NHS, Leicestershire Search and Rescue and the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust.
