Firefighters and their friends and families had been busy baking for the event at Skegness Fire Station.

Crew manager Ricky Clark, a keen baker when he finds the time, was particularly proud of his vanilla Victoria sponge.

While members of the public tucked in, Firefighter Connell McGrorey was encouraging members of the public to have a go at CPR training.

He said: “It’s part of an initiative we are running with Radio Lincolnshire and LIVES because at the scene of an accident, the sooner casualties get CPR the better chance they have of survival.”
