Sirens sound for a fun day at Corsham Children’s Centre
8:00pm Saturday 17th August 2013 in Latest News
Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to Corsham Children’s Centre on Wednesday, but rather than an emergency they were on hand for fun and games.
The centre’s first emergency services fun day saw more than 260 people meet the emergency responders, to learn about the vital work they do in the community.
Centre play worker Stephanie Scholtz said: “It was brilliant.
“We had 161 children come along, which is fantastic.
“We had two police officers with two cars out front, which were opened up for the children to get in and push all the buttons, set off the sirens and wear the helmets.
“There were also two St John’s Ambulance crew members, who were letting the kids climb into the ambulance, and a fire officer who had dressing up stuff for them to try on.
“They could make their own police and fire helmets, and we set up a teddy bears’ hospital, with beds for all the teddies.
“It’s our first time doing something like this, and we’d love to do it again.”
