Children Gain Awards

in News

The youngsters were invited along to Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) headquarters in Charles Hastings Way, Worcester, yesterday evening (Monday 23 July), where they were presented with their framed certificates.

Both Station Commander Alan Haley from HWFRS and Chief Inspector Jim Baker from West Mercia Police were at the presentation evening.

Gill Pinder, Education Liaison Officer with HWFRS, said: "Road safety was a key theme on the Emergency Services stand at this year's Three Counties Show. It was encouraging to see so many youngsters completing the activities, and by doing so, gaining a greater awareness of road safety."

She said that the initiative was supported by the Safer Roads Partnership, and that the children were awarded for completing a range of colouring, cutting and gluing activities to a high standard.

As well as the framed certificates, the children also received family passes to either West Midlands Safari Park, Eastnor Castle, the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo or Severn Valley Railway.
