HYDE was a hive of activity as it hosted its annual Blue Light Day.
The event, held in the town’s Civic Square, showcased the invaluable services provided by emergency response teams while honouring the memory of a beloved local figure.
Roger Bamford, the former chair of Hyde Town Team who was instrumental in bringing Blue Light Day to Hyde, sadly passed away in 2020.
And its continuation served as a fitting tribute to his unwavering dedication and commitment to the community.
Greater Manchester Police, along with the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, played an active role, offering valuable advice to attendees.
The police car and fire engine stood proudly on display, inviting excited children to explore their interiors and sit in the driver’s seat.
In addition to the interactive displays, the Greater Manchester First Responder Team conducted CPR demonstrations, equipping participants with lifesaving skills.
Blood Bikes Manchester, a dedicated charity organisation key in transporting blood and medical supplies to hospitals, showcased their vital work and highlighted the impact they make on the community.
And Hyde’s branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution told how the funds it has raised for 100 years have helped those in danger in water around the country.
