SAFETY FIRST: Ruth Irwin of Maryport Infant School demonstrating a fire helmet to her pupils.

The Maryport Extended Schools’ Partnership organised the safety day which involved around 18 children, aged five to seven, from nine different schools.

Those helping the children to learn to be safe included Maryport Inshore rescue and the Coastguard who bought the vehicles and small life boat to the Wave centre

Maryport Fire and Rescue service brought the fire appliance as well as lots of equipment to show the children

The police were represented by two local PCSOs who gave a presentation on safety in the summer holidays, focusing on stranger danger and anti-social behaviour, they also had the police van for the children to look at.

There was also a teacher-led poster making workshop reminding the children about the importance of internet safety.

Extended partnership co-ordinator, Nicola Woolley, said each workshop lasted 30 minutes and all schools moved around the different ones during a morning or afternoon.

She thanked town clerk, Lisa Douglas, who helped with the organisation and with handing out refreshments on the day.
