Borehamwood's emergency services will be holding a joint open day on Saturday.

The town's police, fire and ambulance stations, in Elstree Way, will be welcoming the public with a variety of attractions, from 2pm to 5pm.

Activities at Borehamwood Police Station include: free motorcyclists' assessments; free stamping of bicycles and garden equipment, to make them easier to recover if stolen; a barbecue; the opening of the cells and "most-wanted" photographs and fingerprints being taken. There will also be an inflatable incident tent, recruitment advice and police riot vans.

Displays planned at the fire station include how to deal with a chip-pan fire, and the methods firefighters use to tackle house blazes and accidents. Visitors can also enter a smoke tent, or inspect the "Simon Snorkel" hydraulic platform which will visit the station from St Albans.

The open days at the two stations have become an annual event, as part of Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council's Town Festival.

Other festival events on Saturday include The Festival Summer Flower Show, at Allum Hall, in Allum Lane, from 2.30pm, and Holy Cross Church Summer Fete, at the church in Balmoral Drive, from 2pm.

Elstree and Borehamwood Light Operatic Society will perform a musical show, Live on Stage, at Fairway Hall, in Brook Close, on Saturday at 8pm. For details phone 020 8207 1382.
