Local residents came out in force to meet staff and volunteers from the local fire; ambulance; police; air ambulance and free wheelers services. From taking finger prints to learning CPR, there was something for all ages to enjoy.

Even the police horses made an appearance!

Thanks go to the emergency service personnel for sharing their time and expertise on the day.

The event was organised by Holy Trinity Paulton, to enable the community to come together to learn more about, and support, the people who help us when we need it most.

Planning has already begun for next year's event! Before that, there will be more chances to spend time together as a community at a range of summer events planned by the Church.
