Hundreds turn out for fire station open day
MORE than 500 people visited Stroud's fire station on Saturday.
The station's open day drew visitors of all ages. It was a chance for would-be Fireman Sams to get close to fire engines, and for people to get fire safety advice.
Station Commander Graham Parker said: "It was a great day that was really well attended, with more than 500 people joining us.
"The rescue simulations drew the biggest crowds, giving the community a good idea of the range of work we do."
