I am wondering if anyone has had a party at a firestation before? I know that you can hold it at the historic firestation in Barton but I am not sure how good that would be.
Has anyone had a party at the historic firestation? How did the day run? Were the kids engaged or was it just like a museum/play on an old firetruck?
Has anyone had a party at wnother firestation?
Is there any way to book a firetruck to visit a party and if so at what cost?
Thanks in advance.

I've been to heaps of parties at a fire station - but that is because my DP is a volunteer fireman!
I would go and talk with the chaps at your local station and find out if they would do a visit for the party, I know DP has been and done 'surprise visits' for children and of course they are always delivering Santa here there and everywhere in December!
I don't think they can charge you for that, it is more of a 'community service' however a donation to the fire station/their current charity would probably be in order..
Hope someone with more useful local knowledge responds .

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
