Family-friendly events include ‘dunk the firefighter’, a bouncy castle, a BBQ, teas, ice cream and a tombola.

Modern-day fire engines will be on display too, along with a blue light simulator where video images of a call out are projected onto a screen to recreate what it is like to ride a fire engine to an emergency incident.

Firefighter Mark Rogers said: “It’s been a great event to organise and should be a lot of fun on the day so make sure you bring all your friends and family along.”
