People had donated thousands and thousands of books to the Fire Station Book Sale. Money raised goes to the Fire Fighters Charity.
The Fire Station needed a new sign, and could be the first public body to get an Abingdon-on-Thames sign. It was unveiled by the Mayor during today’s Open Day.
Alongside the Mayor are the Fire Station Manager, and the County Council Cabinet Member for Safer and Stronger Communities which includes the Fire Service.
There were lots of other things going on for children of all ages, most involving fire station equipment.
There was even a chance for people to go up in the lift used to rescue people from high buildings, tackle high up fires, and get aerial views of incident scenes.
We are into the School Holidays and there are predictions that the jet stream is moving north and could take the wet and windy weather with it. Let us hope there is a golden Olympic summer ahead.
(More pictures from the lift in a day or so.)
