999 Fun Day on The Moor

Sunday 23rd April 2017

The Moor once again teamed up with the National Emergency Services Museum to host the annual 999 Fun Day.

 

Thousands turned out in fine weather to take part in the free event, which has become a firm favourite on the The Moor’s annual event calendar.

 

All forms of Emergency Services past and present were represented at the Fun Day, which took place on Sunday, 23 April. Staff and volunteers from the police, the ambulance service, fire and rescue, road safety and the RNLI were all in attendance, along with an impressive array of equipment, demonstrations and vehicles. There was also a great selection of vintage vehicles for visitors to see. 

 

Amanda Phillips, Centre Manager said:

“The 999 Fun Day is always really well attended and loved by many. There is a great atmosphere and lots of activities for families to participate in. Plus it’s a good, fun way of spreading important safety messages and highlights the invaluable work our emergency services do.”

 

The next major event on The Moor is Taste Moor, part of Sheffield Food Festival on 27th May.
