To spread the message about staying safe this Christmas, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue enlisted the help of local school pupils, who designed a range of creative posters.

Amongst the winners of the competition were pupils from Grantham’s National C of E Junior School, as well as from Barkston and Syston Primary School.

There were two age categories, for those aged 4-6 and those between 7-11, who had the chance to win Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue LFR advent calendars.

The service thanked all the excellent entrants and said it was extremely difficult to choose the winners.

The children were asked to create posters using the following safety advice:

*Make sure you have a smoke alarm with working batteries on each floor of your house

*Test your smoke alarm at least once a week by pressing the button

*Make sure you don’t leave the kitchen when cooking in case it burns and catches fire

*When charging phones, laptops and gadgets, don’t put too many in the socket at the same time

*Put out the fire properly before going to bed or leaving the house

*Switch off christmas lights before leaving the house or going to bed
