Alveston C of E Primary School Pupil Wins Stratford-on-Avon District Firework Safety Poster Competition 2018

Finn, a pupil at Alveston Church of England Primary School, has won first prize in the Stratford-on-Avon District Firework Safety Poem Competition 2018.

Warwickshire County Council’s Trading Standards and Fire and Rescue Services organise the annual competition. Children are asked to design a poster or write a poem that will help warn children and young people about the dangers of fireworks.

Warwickshire County Councillor Andy Crump, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety said: “We’ve had some fantastic entries to this year’s competition and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate our winners and thank everyone for taking part.”

“Many children love to watch fireworks, but it’s important that they are kept safe. Warwickshire’s Trading Standards and Fire and Rescue Services seek to keep children safe by helping to ensure that fireworks are stored safely, are not sold to young people under the age of 18 and that children are protected when they attend firework events.”

Each winner will receive a £25 gift voucher and a visit to a fire station. Their poster or poem will also be used as part of the November 2019 campaign.
