Budding firefighters visit Gaydon Fire Station

Leamington Editorial 8th Nov, 2023   0

BUDDING firefighters from Lighthorne Heath Primary School took a trip to a fire station.

The youngsters visited the fire station in Gaydon to find out more about the role of the fire service.

The pupils, aged four, were given a tour of the station and even had a chance to sit in an emergency services truck and test out the fire service hose.

The trip was organised by home builder Taylor Wimpey Midlands.

Andy Hickman, crew manager at Gaydon Fire Station, said: “Working in partnership with schools is key to our prevention activities, and overall helping to keep our communities safe. We are always pleased to welcome local schools to the station to educate and inspire young people on the role of fire service.”

Associate headteacher Jill Manley added: “I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey on behalf of everyone at our school. The trip to Gaydon Fire Station was fantastic, and all our students thoroughly enjoyed it. The students were given an insight into the role of a firefighter as part of our curriculum topic, ‘people who help us’.”
