A free Mid-Sussex 999 Funday will be held by the emergency services in Burgess Hill.

The event will take place at the Worlds End Recreation Ground on Saturday August 30 from 11am to 5pm.

Visitors will see emergency services displays, a marching band, and sports events.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, will open the event and will be there as part of her ‘Talk Sussex’ engagement programme which is an opportunity for residents to have their say in local policing and crime priorities.

Mrs Bourne said: “I am delighted to be opening the 999 event on Saturday and I’m looking forward to joining colleagues and residents. Events such as these provide a fun platform for all our emergency services to demonstrate what they do best and this is why I have donated £5000 from my Safe in Sussex Community Fund to support the event.”

The event will also be a chance for the Sussex Youth Commission to engage with young people as part of their ‘Big Conversation’ on policing and crime, which will inform,challenge and support the Police & Crime Plan.
