The event is organised by Fareham Borough Council and gives people the opportunity to explore, and find out more about, different emergency organisations.

Services being represented included Hampshire Constabulary, St John Ambulance and Gosport and Fareham Independent Lifeboat Station.

Angela Chappell, of Beaufort Avenue, Fareham, was with her daughters Bess, five, and Rebecca, eight.

She said: ‘The girls had a great time, it was really educational for them.’
