Hereford United Football Club Family Festival

in News

The Family Festival is all part of a Football League incentive for clubs to link with their communities, and attract fresh support to watch the sport. United are staging their big day on Saturday November 5th when they play league leaders Crawley Town at Edgar Street.

A big feature of the afternoon will be the special visit from Hereford and Worcester firefighters who are going to work with the Bulls to help promote fitness and safety to fans – and of course, support their local team.

As part of its winter safety campaign Fire Service staff will be outside the ground from 1:30pm, so why not come along early with family and friends and take the opportunity to see the latest equipment on the fire engines and ask firefighters your questions such as: "Why should smoke alarms be tested weekly and not monthly?"

Fans can also take part in the FireFit Challenge – helping your firefighters and HUFC to cover a stage of the 5,250 miles in a virtual Beijing to London 'triathlon'.

The Festival will also include a fancy dress competition, face painting for children and half time entertainment on the day will include a FireFit and football skills challenge involving the Fire Service mascot "Blaze Bear" and United's own "Edgar the Bull".

The club are selling a special family ticket for £25 – which will admit 2 adults and up to 3 children – for this game. Further details can be found on the following link to Hereford United's website… www.herefordunited.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10835~2492114,00.html
