999 weekend on Western Lawns

Have your say

EMERGENCY services in Eastbourne are gearing up for the 25th annual 999 event on the Western Lawns.

It takes place this weekend (Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8) and gives residents the chance to meet members of the emergency services and take a closer look at their equipment.

This year there is also the added bonus of seeing the town’s new state-of-the-art Tamar class lifeboat, which will be used in a series of demonstrations.

The 999 event runs throughout the weekend and is expected to be well attended.
