Gafirs chairman Keith Thomas said: ‘We are very proud to highlight the amazing work our emergency services do and this event is a great way for the public to come and meet these heroes face to face.

‘Not only will members of the public get the chance to see and hear all about these fantastic services, they’ll also be able to meet our lifeboat crews who work tirelessly to keep the waters of the Solent safe.’

The event on Sunday is from 11am until 4pm.
