  • (1888PressRelease) August 03, 2010 - Labelled a "huge success" by the Mayor of Hailsham Cllr Robin Kempe, who attended the Fun Day on behalf of the Town Council, the event attracted a lot of people and included emergency services representatives giving the public the opportunity to find out more about the services they provide.

    Demonstrations were held at regular intervals throughout the day by Lowland Search Dogs, and HM Coastguards, St. John Ambulance and East Sussex County Council Road Safety were on hand to give advice and talk about what they do.

    Representatives from East Sussex Fire and Rescue, Wealden District Council, Active Play and Crimestoppers also took part in the day, along with a number of other community organisations.

    A number of exhibitors and stall holders also made sure that there were plenty of activities to interest visitors.

    Commenting on the event, Cllr Kempe said, "The 999 Fun Day provided people with the opportunity to find out more about the work of the emergency services, see some of the equipment they use close up and get to know their local police and fire service teams. It also raised awareness about what the public can do to tackle community safety issues in the area."

    "There was a wide range of activities for people of all ages and, overall, the event proved to be an excellent opportunity for members of the Hailsham community to mingle and have some fun."

    "It was a thorough pleasure to invited to the event as a special guest and take part in its activities, and I would like to thank each and everyone involved in organising the 999 Fun Day for making it such a success!"
