Emergency Services Show in Hullavington
A DISPLAY by police dogs will give this year's Emergency Services Show added bite.
Wiltshire Air Ambulance and vintage vehicles are some of the other attractions at the show which takes place at Hullavington airfield near Malmesbury on September 8.
The show is a firm favourite with visitors but took a year off last year because of the Olympic Games.
This year organisers say it will be returning bigger and better than ever.
Committee chairman Chris Harvey said: "This is the eighth show and, after taking a break in 2012 because of the Olympics, we are confident that we’re back for 2013 with an event that is bigger and better.
"There’s still time to get involved, either as an exhibitor or a trader by visiting our website.
"With some 10,000 visitors in 2011, this is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to support a truly local show.”
Activities already confirmed are demonstrations by the Wiltshire Police dog section, a jump by the Renegades Parachute Display Team, static displays of a wide range of new and vintage emergency service vehicles, the Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Great Western Air Ambulance, fire engine and police car rides and a fun fair.
There will also be the chance to talk to police officers, firefighters and paramedics about their work.
The Emergency Services Show is organised by a committee of volunteers drawn from Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, South Western Ambulance Service and the Highways Agency.
Pre-sale tickets are also available online and cost £5 for adults, £2.50 for children under 16 and free for the under threes. As well as saving money, the tickets grant access to the show through a fastrack gate.
The show takes place on September 8 from 10am and 4pm.
