Pupils learn about how the emergency service operate

PUPILS at Shute Community Primary School have been finding out about how the emergency services operate.

The first group to visit was the local Coastguard unit, followed by a retired lifeboatman from Lyme Regis.

Next, Colyton firefighters took along their engine to show the children how it worked and then the school was visited by an ambulance crew, who allowed the pupils to try out the sirens.

Finally, a road safety expert went along to tell them about traffic dangers.

Headteacher Amanda Graham thanked all the life-savers for going along and added: “All the children loved it”.
