Hundreds of people enjoyed the Blue Light Day in Central Park, Boston on Saturday, September 28.
The emergency services made up of H M Coastguard, LIVES, Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Police Cadets, Air Ambulance, St John’s Ambulance, Louth Search Dogs, Lowland Rescue and Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue turned out to provide a free family day out for all to enjoy.
Children could sit on the police bike, set off the sirens and check their reactions with the Road Safety Partnership’s challenge. St John’s was providing CPR training and recruiting volunteers. Louth Search Dogs provided a search and rescue demonstration.
The Lincolnshire Police mini marathon was held at 12noon with around 40 Mini Police tackling the mini marathon course set up round Central Park.
The event was organised by Boston Borough Council in association with Lincolnshire Police. Event lead, Kamila Nowinska, Boston’s Community Safety Officer, said “I am so pleased to see so many people turn out and give children the opportunity to see what the emergency services do.”
Events Manager, Boston Borough Council, Kristina Willoughby said we have had a fantastic Summer in Central Park. Once again, lovely to see the kids enjoying the Blue Light Day and learn more about what these services provide.
