Children on half-term and their families got to enjoy a variety of hands-on activities during an event on Thursday, April 21.
Family time crafts, sports and games on the paddock, and visits from the Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police Team and Cleveland Fire Brigade proved popular.
Youngsters got to chat to firefighters and community police, try on a variety of different police hats and have a go on the fire hose.
It was part of their work to engage with the community, and also joint spring campaign to help prevent deliberate fires which have been on the rise since the light nights started.

It was part of Hartlepool Holiday Fun, a project run by Hartlepool Borough Council in partnership with different organisations across the town and funded by the Department for Education.
