HUNDREDS of people descended on Wisbech Fire Station on Sunday when the doors were opened for a community fun day.
A blue-light run, drink-drive simulator, rollover simulator, rodeo bull ride, donut eating competition, pony rides and a climbing wall were some of the action-packed activities which were on offer.
Entertainment was provided by Elvis impersonator Tony G, with demonstrations from Whitemoor Prison dog handlers and the Anne Marie Dance School.
The fun day was officially opened by professional snooker player Joe Perry, from Chatteris, and the county's chief fire officer, Tom Carroll.
About £1,400 was raised from the community day for the fire service benevolent fund - which helps to enhance the quality of life for serving and retired firefighters and their families.
Rob Wabe, a firefighter at Wisbech, said: "Thanks to the good weather and the vast range of activities that we had on offer, this was one of our most successful open days ever.
