Meet your local firefighters and enjoy a gentle walk in Winslow, thanks to a new initiative from Bucks Fire & Rescue.

The new Simply Walk event will take place from 10.20am every Monday, starting next week.

The half-hour walks, led by local firefighters, will start and finish at Winslow Fire Station, as part of a plan to make more use of fire stations as community spaces.

The walks are free of charge, and there’s a chance to see inside the newly refurbished fire station, with tea and coffee being served afterwards.

Monday’s walk will be led by crew commander Mark Illing and community safety officer Oliver Franklin.

Similar schemes are also being set up at fire stations in Aylesbury and Waddesdon.
