A police spokesman said: “There will be a host of activities for children including a vehicle display and speed gun challenge plus a range of other stalls.

“Police officers will also be on hand to discuss local issues and there will be representatives from the ambulance service, Neighbourhood Watch and alcohol and drugs advisory services.
