Firefighters from March fire station surprised children who were ‘trick or treating’ around the town for Halloween on Sunday (October 31). 

Crews took both fire engines around different areas of the town from 5:30pm with Halloween treats on board. 

Prior to the evening, the crew posted on social media asking the people of March where they’d like them to visit – there was a huge response! 

A spokesperson said: “The crews split up and tried to get to as many people as possible.

"Their visits were very popular and children were very grateful for the treats being dished out."

One of the places the crew visited was 'Halloween House' on Wisbech Road, who raised £700 this year for Westwood Primary School.
