​The Mounts fire station in Northampton is set to welcome visitors of all ages this weekend as it hosts its fourth annual charity open day.

From 11am to 5pm on Saturday 2 September, the station, in Upper Mounts, will be home to attractions including live music, vintage vehicles including a steam roller and wheeled escape fire engine, Morris dancers, and arts and crafts.

Younger visitors can play on a truck-styled bouncy castle, have their faces painted, and enjoy an ice cream.

There will also be stalls featuring local producers, and food on offer includes a hog roast, barbecue and The Tandoori curry wagon. A licensed bar will also be open.

Crews are raising money for the National Children’s Burns Trust and The Fire Fighters’ Charity, and are encouraging everyone to come and join in the event’s carnival atmosphere.
