Open day at Stratton Fire Station this Saturday

Stratton Community Fire Station is throwing open its doors to the public this weekend, with a day that promises something for everyone. The open day will run between 11am and 3pm on Saturday (15 July), and any money raised will be divided between the Fire Fighters Charity and Crowdys Hill School in Swindon.

There will be a wide range of activities to suit the whole family, including:

  • Both modern and vintage fire engines on display;
  • Other appliances from within Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service;
  • Demonstrations;
  • Stalls;
  • Face painting;
  • Tombola;
  • Refreshments, including a barbecue; and
  • And much more!

Watch Manager Mark Evans, from Stratton Fire Station, said: “This is a great way for our local community to find out more about its local fire station and I’m sure a lot of Swindon residents would love to come and look around and see the equipment and vehicles we use. We would like as many people as possible to come along to our open day, have a great time and leave with some vital fire and road safety messages. There’s even the chance to talk with the crews about becoming an on-call firefighter.”
