It’s hot stuff

THE party spirit will be ignited in Pegswood with a fund-raising family fun day.

Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service is organising the event at Pegswood Community Fire Station to raise funds for The Firefighters’ Charity and the special care baby unit at Wansbeck Hospital.

A packed programme of activities is planned, including fire service demonstrations, children’s inflatables and swings, a firefighter challenge for visitors to join in and a driving simulator challenge.

There will also be stalls, refreshments, a raffle and tombola, while Newbiggin Brass Band will strike up the music.

Northumberland County Council Executive Member for Public Protection Anita Romer said: “As the day takes place at one of Northumberland’s new community fire stations, it’s also a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to take a look at this state-of-the-art facility.”

The event takes place on Saturday, from noon.
