Kent Fire and Rescue Service will be holding a free family fun open day at Ramsgate’s new station in Newington Road.

Fire engines and face-painting, selfie-boards and shows, awesome activity zones and all-round family fun are just a few of the things visitors can expect to find.

Visitors can meet firefighters and staff before taking part in the activities and fire and road safety experiences.

Children will be able to pick up a free activity trail card before exploring four new designated zones. Get a stamp for each zone completed as you make your way through and take part in a range of exciting and educational activities. Community Safety Officers will also be on hand with the opportunity to find out more about Safe and Well visits and other services provided by KFRS.
