The annual event offers a raft of free activities for all the family relating to staying safe around water.

It is taking place between 11am and 4pm at Bewl Water in Lamberhurst.

In the Water Savvy Village within the lower car park will be the chance to climb aboard a fire engine, dress up in firefighting gear, learn about the Kent Search and Rescue boat and meet the KSAR search dogs - including a new pup in training!

Whilst in the Water Savvy Arena kids will be able to climb aboard a rescue boat, have a go at throwing a line into the water in the event that someone was in trouble, meet and cuddle Kent Fire and Rescue Dog Buzz and the Splashpals Newfoundland dogs and get advice from the RNLI about what to do if you fall into deep water.

There will be lots of four-legged friends to meet at the fun day
