Hundreds of
Emergency Services families enjoyed fun in the sun at Clacton Pier.

Frontline
Police, Fire, Ambulance, RNLI and Coastguard personnel turned out on Saturday
and Sunday to pick up their free ride wristbands.

Each family
received up to four wristbands in gratitude for all their efforts to keep the
community safe and well throughout the year.

Live music
and children’s entertainment in the form of James Magic was also laid on over
the two days.

More than
1,000 wristbands were handed out to families and they made the most of the
attractions on offer.

Pier communications
manager Nigel Brown said the event was very well received.

“Luckily
the weather stayed dry and sunny, despite the threat of thunderstorms, and
there were lots of smiling faces around,” he added.

“We
received many thanks for the free wristbands and everyone seemed to enjoy
themselves and had a relaxing time.”

On Sunday
the pier also offered a free game of bowling and coffee or tea for dads on
Father’s Day.

A weekend for
the Armed Forces and Veterans will be staged on September 16 and 17 when the
attraction will remain open to other visitors.
