Safety fun day

SAFETY first will be the message in Filey this weekend during the town’s annual Safety Fun Day.

The popular event, which highlights the work of emergency services across the area, takes place in Filey Country Park on Sunday.

Featuring a visit from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Fire and Rescue teams, ambulance and police crews and coastguard and lifeboat teams will also be on hand to talk about the work they do.

Organiser Chris Hodgson said: “It is very much hands-on, which is the real beauty and everyone can speak to people and get an insight into what they do.”

The event takes place from 11am until 4pm and is free, though people can leave donations towards the services’ continuing work.
