The town council donates £325 to support Life Education Wessex’s work with young people

Schoolchildren in Lyme Regis have been learning how to lead safe and healthy lives with the help of town council funding.

Life Education Wessex, which provides health, wellbeing and drugs’ education to young people, spent two days at St Michael’s Primary School with its mobile classroom.

The organisation provides children with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to make healthy choices and avoid risky behaviours.

Town councillors Richard Doney and Sean Larcombe joined the year 5 pupils for their session on ‘friends’ and presented Life Education Wessex with a cheque for £325.
