Mr Mitchley said: "This is a community fire station. We try very hard to make sure that residents feel comfortable approaching us in the street with any fire safety queries that they have and we always try to make people feel welcome at our station. We try to hold as many events for the local community as we can. In the past six months, we have held a motorbike safety day, a safety zone for local schoolchildren and we have also taken part in the St Neots Fire Engine Pull.

"The open day is our main event of the year and we hope as many residents as possible will come and have a look round and find out more about fire safety, the fire service, the firefighters and the station.
