A charity Christmas fayre is being organised at Weymouth fire station on Sunday 11 December to raise money for three good causes.
The ‘Fire Cracker’ event will run between 1pm and 4pm, with proceeds shared between the Fire Fighters Charity, SafeWise and Julia’s House Hospice.
As well as a range of stalls, there will be refreshments, a raffle, rides on a land train, and performances from local school choirs and majorettes.
Santa will be abseiling into the fire station at 1pm and will then have his own grotto and Christmas donkeys, while children will also have the chance to dress up as a firefighter.
The Weymouth crews will do a live fire display to focus on Christmas safety, and an road traffic collision display will highlight the importance of not drinking and driving.
Crew Manager Adrian Miller, an on-call firefighter at Weymouth who’s organising the event, said: “We had a really successful open day in the summer, so we thought it would be good to do something on station for the festive season. We’re just finalising the plans now, and it promises to be a great afternoon – there may even be snow!”
