Public sector organisations will come together at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge on July 3 with the aim of breaking down barriers between the emergency services and people with learning disabilities.

The annual Blue Light Day, from 10am and 3pm, last year attracted over 500 people, and free bus services will be available to the venue from across Cornwall.

Now in its sixth year, the event will feature around 70 different stalls from many public, charitable and private sector exhibitors.

Colin Gameson, from the police diversity team, who has organised the last three Blue Light Days, said: “The event is becoming a major event in the public sector calendar because it gives all organisations a chance to engage with so many people on an informal, one to one basis.

“It also allows those of us in the emergency services to view the work of our colleagues in the charitable sector and find new ways that we can work together to the benefit of all communities.”

Bus timetable: West Cornwall: 8.00am Penzance bus station; 8.30am Helston Coinagehall Street; 8.55am Redruth train station; 9.20am Truro coach park; 9.55am Newquay bus station; 10.30am arrives in Wadebridge.
