Competition Winner Visits Fire Station

Tia Hensher, aged 10 and in Key Stage Two at Dines Green Community School, was chosen as one of the winners of the 'Design a Poster' competition, organised during the recent Community Safety Day held at Worcester Racecourse in July.

he competition aimed to promote greater fire safety awareness among children of all ages across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and Tia and her family were invited along for a tour of Worcester Fire Station followed by lunch at Fire Service Headquarters.

The winning poster design, which included some key fire safety messages, was framed and presented to Tia during her visit.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Richard Lawrence said: "The 'Design a Poster' project is one of many initiatives we run to encourage young people of all ages to think about fire safety, and it was clear from the designs we saw that young people are taking on board our fire safety messages. Tia was a worthy winner in her age category and it was a pleasure to welcome her and her family at Service headquarters today. We hope they enjoyed the visit."

Mia Price, a Key Stage One pupil at Gorse Hill Community Primary School, was also chosen as a winner in her age category but was unable to attend the visit.
