999 weekend on Western Lawns

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.
