Youngsters enjoy visit by Fenland firefighters for National Fire Prevention Week

TINY tots and their parents enjoyed fire safety fun with firefighters as part of National Fire Prevention Week.

Crews from Manea and Wisbech came out with their fire engines to join the regular Ormiston ‘Learn to Play’ sessions at both Manea Primary School and Thomas Eaton Primary School in Wimblington, entertaining youngsters and their parents.

Children enjoyed dressing up, playing games and a short film about the dangers of playing with matches before exploring the fire engines.

Amanda Newman, manager of Ormiston’s March and Chatteris Children’s Centres who organised the events, said “It was so exciting. The little ones absolutely loved meeting the friendly firefighters and we all learnt lots more about fire safety in the home.

“Our Learn to Play sessions are free and open to all families with children under four. Each week we explore new activities and games, designed to help boost children’s learning and development through play.”
