FIREFIGHTERS from Southsea fire station are putting themselves to the test at Asda in Fratton by taking part in a range of fitness activities while dressed in full fire-fighting gear.

There will be an opportunity for the public to meet and talk to firefighters, look at the equipment that they use and ask for safety advice.

The event will be held on Saturday, March 12 from 10am-4pm and will be raising money for The Fire Fighters Charity. It is part of the Cockleshell Challenge. For more information go to
