Fire Engine Visits Gable House Nursery'NBFP PA1333-5

Youngsters at Gable House Nursery got to try their hand at being a firefighter last week.

Staff from the Bridlington Fire Station visited the nursery with a fire engine, which the group of 25 children, aged between one and five, could explore.

They were also allowed to try their hand at using the firehose, try on the uniform and were given a talk on the importance of smoke alarms.

The day tied in with the topic of safety, which youngsters are learning about at nursery.

Sarah Batten, manager at Gable House Nursery, in Wellington Road, said: “The children are still talking about it now. They really enjoyed the excitement of the big engine and using the hose.

“We chose this topic because it is a good time to talk about safety and how people help us - it is very important.

“The fire crew were all fantastic, and very approachable.”

She said the nursery team were hopeful of a visit from the coast guard and police to continue the theme.
