Children from Uplyme Pre-School with Lyme Regis fire brigade

CHILDREN from Uplyme Pre-School welcomed visitors from the local emergency services this week.

The youngsters have been learning about transport, finishing with emergency vehicles before breaking up for half term.

This included discussing the work of the ambulances, and the children had great fun bandaging the staff and their friends.

Elliott Herbert from Lyme Regis lifeboat Crew gave a talk about the work of the RNLI and how to keep safe whilst at the seaside.

Finally on Friday, members of Lyme Regis fire brigade came to see the children. Station chief Virgil Turner spoke about the dangers of fire, and gave the youngsters guided tour of the
fire engine.

Jan Fowler from Uplyme Pre-School said: “We are very grateful to all the emergency services who came along to speak to the children about the important work they do.”
