On both days there will be opportunities for families to get involved in history trails around the museum, craft activities and a chance to sit on the fire engines (and squirt water😊).
The museum is free entry (but visits are by appointment only……..as we are on the site of an operational fire station).
If families are interested, could they please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the number in their party and the time they would like to arrive. This is just because we have to keep the station informed of numbers throughout the day.
Our address and contact details are:
Fire Station, Hogg Lane, Grays RM17 5QS
Website: Fire Museum (essex-fire.gov.uk)

The warm weather seems to have finally arrived, and spring term is almost over! As we move into summer and even warmer weather, Uttlesford Children's Clothing Bank would just like to let you know that we have really good quantities of summer school uniform and PE kit if you have any families at your school who may struggle to buy these items. It's really important to us that children feel happy and comfortable in their clothes, so everything we give out has been checked by us to ensure it meets our high standards.
You can refer a family using the Frontline app, or by using the form on our website. https://www.uccb.org.uk/referrals We are usually able to drop clothing off at school for collection by the family.
We are starting to take requests directly from families via Facebook, where they can send us a message. Our Facebook page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/uttlesfordchildrensclothingbank Please feel free to share this information in your weekly newsletter.
Finally, alongside uniform, we can also provide shoes, trainers and clothes for outside of school.
All the best,
Emma, Madi and Cath.
On behalf of Uttlesford Children's Clothing Bank
