EMERGENCY SERVICES HERITAGE SHOW

 

http://www.newark999show.co.uk

 

The East Midlands Branch are pleased to announce that we are to put on the EMERGENCY SERVICES HERITAGE SHOW  in 2016 and it is again to be held at the Newark showground on the 2nd and 3rd of July and will involve as many aspects of our emergency services heritage as possible including fire ,ambulance and police also we  have had interest from heavy road rescue services, air ambulance, water rescue and dive teams which if everything happens as hoped will result in some spectacular arena scenarios  all being played out for everyone to enjoy at relatively close quarters involving current county appliances and the air ambulance   (all subject to operational commitments) as well as our preserved vehicles and equipment

We will once again bring the friendly welcoming family atmosphere from the previous show along to the show site which has been picked due to its central location and remarkable record of not having a show cancelled due to adverse weather  the majority of exhibits and arena will be situated on hard standing with plenty of free draining grass area for camping and fun fairs stalls etc.

we are especially hoping to have a good display of turntable ladders and wheeled escapes due to the hard standing arena and a scaffolding structure will once again be available to pitch against, the uninsurable bungalow will also be there If it hasn't burnt down by then!

If you would like to join us  in this adventure and help us to raise funds for local children's charities, the Air Ambulance and the fire fighters charity then please feel free to use the email links on this site or follow us on facebook The Emergency Services Heritage Show and keep your eye open for further updates as they happen

SO THE DATES FOR YOUR DIARY ARE 2nd AND 3rd OF JULY 2016 AT NEWARK SHOWGROUND NG24 2NY, WE HOPE SEE YOU THERE FOLKS
