PRE-school children at Gill Ebbins’ Child-minding Practice in Harlaxton have been learning all about the importance of staying safe.

On Monday, the children enjoyed a visit from police community support officer Mark Barr (pictured). He taught them the importance of approaching a ‘safer stranger’ such as a police officer if they get lost.

The children were taught in an informative but fun way, getting the chance to ‘drive’ the police car and play with the siren and flashing lights.

Gill, who owns the child-minding practice, said: “It is really important as children reach school age that they know how to keep themselves safe and that they are confident enough to approach a police officer if they ever needed to.”
