An event aimed at breaking down barriers between the emergency services and adults with learning disabilities is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The Blue Light Day is being held at the Royal Cornwall Showground on July 5 between 10am and 2.30pm and adults with learning disabilities and autism and their carers are invited. Visitors can meet representatives from all the emergency services and will be treated to demonstrations revealing some of the work they do.
Staged in two large halls at the showground, there will be an entertainment stage with performances from musicians including the police pipes and drums band and a selection of stands.
Outside there will be displays including the police drone with a live feed into one of the halls and a demonstration of how the services work together to rescue victims of a road collision. Always popular is a visit from the Purple Angel ponies who help those with dementia and learning disabilities relax and get out in the fresh air.
Booking is not necessary and entry is free. For more information please email [email protected]
