AMMANFORD Fire Station's open day and barbecue on Saturday was a sizzling success.

Nearly 1,000 people cam along for a day out in the blazing sun to help raise money for the National Fire Service Benevolent Fund.

Stalls on the yard off Heol Wallasey included jumble, lucky dip, books and cakes. Children played on the fire engine and inflatable castle.

Dilwyn the Dragon, the county fire service mascot, looked on as people paid to ride up in the hydraulic lift and look over the town.

A bed push the night before (Friday) from Gwaun Cae Gurwen square to Ammanford, calling at all the pubs on the way, also worked out well.

The annual event was officially opened by the mayor of Ammanford Mr. Godfrey Hitchings at 12 noon. It finished at 5.15 pm and a barbecue began at 7 pm.
