Cheshire Police Blue Light Community Engagement Day 2019Ben, Mike & Phil at Winsford Blue Light Event 2019

Chester and Nantwich Advanced Drivers had a very successful day at Cheshire Police & Fire Service Blue Light Community Engagement Day at their Winsford joint headquarters.
The day was an opportunity for the Cheshire Police and Fire Service to engage with the community, through numerous stands and events encompassing; Taser demonstrations, a mock road traffic collision, Police Dog demonstrations and the Constabulary’s Band performances.


Thanks to CaNAD’s then Vice Chairman (Mike) the group were able to have their own stand alongside the Force’s own stands to promote IAM Roadsmart and Road Safety in general.
Over 6,000 people enjoyed the day, and Ben, Mike and Phil were able to offer over 20 people Taster Drives with our group.Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service Logo
