Fire service wants to give you a hosing down

THE fire brigade will be putting their hoses to good use on 31 March in aid of a national charity.

The national car wash is the biggest fund-raising event of the Fire Fighters Charity and will this year take place at the Co-operative supermarket’s car park between 11am and 3pm.

In 2011 fund-raisers raised almost £290,000 which helps thousands of fire and rescue staff, serving and retired, and their families in times of need.

Residents are invited to bring their cars down and for a small donation they will get their vehicles washed by Whitby’s fire crew.

Advice can also be given on how to fit car seats.
