Cromer open day

Emergency services gathered in North Norfolk for an ambulance station open day, raising funds for a local charity.

More than £400 was raised for charity Nelson’s Journey, a charity that supports bereaved children in Norfolk.

The event on Sunday 3rd July at Cromer ambulance station gave hundreds of people the chance to find out more about the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST), meet the staff and explore the ins and outs of an ambulance.

Dale Meacham-Roberts, Cromer Duty Locality Officer, said: “The day went very well and the weather was great. We had people of all ages from toddlers to the elderly attending right from the start.

“Thank you to everyone who attended. I hope the day gave the public the opportunity to see what we do on a day to day basis and meet our staff, who do what they can to provide the best care across Norfolk”.

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb, the Mayor of Cromer and Central Norfolk Senior Locality Manager Mark Wrigley opened the event and RNLI, Coastguard, Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue, Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) and EEAST CFRs were also in attendance.
