New edition of Safety Centre newsletter is out now

Mon 14 Jul, 2014

The summer 2014 edition of Newsflash, the newsletter of the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes, has been published (you can open a PDF here).
It contains details of the Safety Centre’s 20th anniversary open day, which will be held on Sunday 27 July from 10am to 4pm. Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, Thames Valley Police, British Transport Police and The Parks Trust are among the organisations taking part.

The newsletter is produced with help from Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service as part of its support for the Kiln Farm-based charity, and printed by Thames Valley Police.
The Safety Centre – also known as Hazard Alley – is a purpose-built interactive education facility for children, who are guided through 12 filmset-style safety scenarios in an indoor ‘mini town’.

Since it opened in 1994, nearly 400,000 children have visited it. As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, the Safety Centre is inviting them to write in with memories of their visits, or instances where they have used the things they learnt.
A winner will be chosen at the end of July, and he or she and five friends will enjoy a VIP visit, including a fully guided tour and a look behind the scenes.
Email your memories to, or leave your comment at the bottom of 'Your Letters' page on the Safety Centre's website,

Future editions will be added here as they are produced: Spring 2015
