Play rangers receive surprise fire visit
FIRE fighters wrapped up the summer holidays in style for a group of young people when paid them a surprise visit.
The fire fighters met up with children taking part in the North Herts District Council’s Play Rangers holiday activity scheme in Priory Memorial Gardens, Royston.
They gave them the chance to sit in fire engines and police cars and have their photos taken inside the vehicles, and try on specialist uniforms.
Parents and carers were also able to talk to Police and Fire Fighters about any safety
concerns they had in the home and in their local communities.
