Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Poster Competition Winner Announced!

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service teamed up with local partners last month to ask 13 local children in the Giggety area to design a poster to promote fire safety in the home.

Six-year-old Harry Lamas from Giggety was announced the winner of the competition at a presentation ceremony held at Wombourne Fire Station on Monday evening. Harry, whose poster will be displayed at Wombourne Fire Station and the Children’s Centre, received WHSmiths vouchers and an art goody bag.

Imrie Tolgyesi from community Learning Partnership said: "It is fantastic to see an increase in the number of activities available for young people and families in Wombourne as a result of agencies working in partnership. The young people all produced brilliant posters promoting fire safety, the winner will be displayed at Kinver Children’s Centre/Library for everyone to see."

All 13 children who took part were invited to the presentation on Monday along with their families where they were treated to refreshments while the posters were being judged by partners. All the children were also presented with an art goody bag and their posters will be displayed in the community room at Wombourne Fire Station.

Partners who helped organise the competition included Staffordshire Fire Service, South Staffordshire Housing Association and Wombourne Community Learning.
