999 Emergency Vehicle Day
This is a fully sanctioned, Covid-compliant event, with the now familiar one-way distanced queuing systems, sanitising stations and toilets, and lots of room outdoors to keep socially-distanced from non-bubble folk!
The Bournemouth Electric Sports & Family Club, with Wessex Fire & Rescue Service, in collaboration with the Swing Unlimited Big Band Group are proud to present a Covid-Safe Community Fun Day featuring an array of over 60 emergency vehicles, including vintage fire engines and ambulances! Live music and entertainment will be provided by SUBB and their community band SU2 with special guests.
Food and Drink available on site throughout the event.
ENTRY – Free, limited ticket-only (for track and trace and social distancing compliance) via Eventbrite

*The Debbie Henderson SU2 Young Musician Scholarship
Debbie Henderson was one of the founding members of SUBB’s community band SU2 back in 2002, and quickly became central to the running and organisation of the whole SUBB Group, as secretary of the SUBB Patrons scheme, treasurer of SU2, and Patrick’s very own Jiminy Cricket!
In May 2020, Debbie unexpectedly passed away. Debbie’s family wanted to direct donations towards something that would support young musicians, and so in conjunction with the SUBB Group, the Richard Ely Trust for Young Musicians, and Play It Again UK music shop, we have inaugurated an annual scholarship in her name giving selected young musicians the opportunity to receive financial support and discounts towards music lessons and instrument repair, hire and purchase, as well as free membership of Swing Unlimited’s Community Big Band.
This scheme will be launched on Monday 31st August at Bournemouth Electric Club (SU2’s “Home/HQ”) as part of the 999 Emergency Services Charity Day.
More information about Debbie’s legacy, her scholarship and ways you can donate will be available through SUBB’s website and Facebook Pages.
