Saltford water safety event is quacking day out

HICKS Gate Fire Station in Keynsham is set to host a ‘chuck a duck’ competition and give water safety advice to local people for a quacking good cause.

The Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) is running the free event at the Riverside Inn, Saltford, on Saturday July 22, 11am to 2pm. The ‘chuck a duck’ contest is at 12pm.

A spokesperson said: “We hope it will be a fun-filled way to engage with our community, giving advice and raising money for The Fire Fighters Charity.”

Firefighters will be on hand to teach attendees what to do if they get into trouble in the water, offer demonstrations, and showcase their life-saving equipment.
