Fraserburgh’s annual Blue Light Festival will return this Sunday, May 11, at the Fraserburgh Leisure Centre.

The annual event, which highlights the life-saving work of the blue light services across the North-east and beyond regularly draws good crowds who come to show their support and enjoy the day.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the people of Fraserburgh and district to see what their emergency services do for them,” said local councillor Charles Buchan.

Last year, highlights at the Blue Light Festival included the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service demonstrating procedure for dealing with a chip pan fire and chopping down a car. There was also a strongman competition and Fraserburgh’s 6.1.0. Dance Academy performed.

Councillor Buchan continued: “By attending at the Leisure Centre on Sunday, adults and children will be entertained, see demonstrations, and be able to speak to, and pick up tips from, the professionals who try to keep us safe.

“Volunteers will also be there, including the Fraserburgh Community Safety Group. I’ll be there at their stall, along with Ronnie McNab and Mary Melville, to promote home safety, good driving, and the PassPlus young driver award.”This year’s event begins at 12:30pm.
