We are holding a motorbike festival and ride out in memory of a close friend who tragically lost his life in an accident this year. He supported the air ambulance and April’s Joan’s Trust which is where all donations shall go to.

He was also very much a family man with two small children so we will ensure it is a family event including stalls, bouncy castles, games etc.

Name one thing that your child will find more exciting than a fire engine? Come down to our Emergency Services Family Fun Day which will provide a platform for all of the ‘blue light’ services to demonstrate their appliances, equipment and skills to you and your family in a safe, controlled environment.

This great family day out is organised by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Police and South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. It is also supported by many local organisations.

Held every summer, the day involves a wide range of charitable organisations which are integral to the work of the emergency services.

Since its inception in 2010, the day has raised over £12,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity and SafeWise, the education charity which runs StreetWise in Bournemouth and Firewise at the Weymouth Community Safety Centre.

We look forward to seeing you there!
