Retired Fire Engine on Show for Kids

Kids will be able to climb aboard a retired 1972 Fire Truck at the Wilson Home Family Fun Day and Antiques Road Show this weekend at The Wilson Home Gardens in Lake Rad Takapuna, next to Takapuna Grammar School.

The gate will open at 11.ooam to allow the 8,000 participants in the Shore to Shore Fun Run to pass the gate on their way to Milford.

Not only will kids be able to climb aboard, they will also be able to have their photographs taken while acting out their fantasies of bravery as they sit in the cab or stand on the rear platform.

The fire truck is owned by Takapuna North Rotarian Bill Grieve who has plans for restoring it to its former glory.

The day offers a fun day out for all the family.  While parents  and other adults get their family antique treasures assessed by experts, kids will be able to ride the merry-go-round, shoot down the Big Slide, leap in the Bouncy Castle, visit the animal farm, get their faces painted, decorate a wall plaque, and much more.

All funds raised will be donated to The Wilson Home Trust for Children with Disabilities and selected Rotary community projects.
