Day to celebrate Banbury’s blue light services
Medics, fire personnel and the police will all be represented
Our Emergency Services are set to be celebrated a week on Saturday (September 2) in Spiceball Park.
Emergency Services Day is a national day marked across the UK and celebrated on September 9.
Banbury’s celebration will run a week ahead of the national event with appearances from Thames Valley Police, Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue, Highways England, and the St John’s Ambulance team.
A mini fairground, ice cream van and free face painting will also be in the park.
Representatives from the police, fire service, and ambulance crews will promote the work they do and provide advice on how we should use the emergency services responsibly. Details will be available for those interested in a career or volunteering opportunities with any of the blue light services.
The day is organised by Thames Valley Police. Constable James Hopkin said: “This will be an amazing day for the family and will give the public an opportunity to see the emergency services up close. Come ask questions, find out what a typical day looks like and speak to personal from the local area. If you are interested in a career in the emergency services, this will be a perfect chance to find out more.”
