Hands-on fun for Lit­tle Stars

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

CHIL­DREN were taught some im­por­tant safety lessons when a fire crew vis­ited their play group.

The Lit­tle Stars Group, set up for par­ents of chil­dren with ad­di­tional needs, wel­comed fire­fight­ers from Delta Watch, based at Mac­cles­field Fire Sta­tion, as part of Na­tional Child Safety Week.

The crew brought along their fire en­gine to the event at Ash Grove Chil­dren’s Cen­tre and talked to the chil­dren and par­ents about safety.

They vis­ited as part of an an­nual cam­paign held to raise aware­ness of the risks of ac­ci­dents and how they can be pre­vented.

This year’s fo­cus is ‘tea-time ter­rors’, fo­cus­ing on the ac­ci­dents that can hap­pen at the time of day when pres­sures are at their peak.

Anna Cun­ning­ham, who or­gan­ised the event, said: “It was very suc­cess­ful event for the Lit­tle Stars Group, it was lovely.

“They all got a go in the fire en­gine and had a go on the fire hose. It was great.”

Lit­tle Stars runs from 1pm to 3pm on Fri­days.

It is a par­ent-led group and of­fers fun ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren, ideas for par­ents, and sup­port around what ser­vices and sup­port are avail­able.
