Children from across Herefordshire will be given crucial information about staying safe and happy in an event spanning several weeks.
The ‘Crucial Crew’ is held each year to educate primary school children on issues such as road, water and fire safety, first aid and emotional wellbeing.
This year more than 2,000 year 6 children from more than 70 schools will be attending.
Our Social Inclusion Team attends the event every year. Team Manager Dominika Lipska-Rosecka said: “This will not only be an enjoyable event, but also an important learning experience for the youngsters.
“The Crucial Crew has been taking place annually for many years now, and each year it gets better and better.
“The children who come along have a great day out with fun workshops and activities, but most importantly they learn about how to stay safe, healthy and happy.
“We’re delighted to have so many children attending this year, and hope the lessons they learn will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”
Agencies involved in Crucial Crew include Western Power, Hope Support, West Mercia Police, Herefordshire County Council, Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, Dogs Trust, CLD Trust, Strong Young Minds, and Network Rail.
The event, which is being held at Leominster Police Station, starts on Monday 19 June and runs until Friday 30 June.
2gether NHS Foundation Trust will also be doing a roadshow with West Mercia Police and Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service at the following Special Educational Needs schools on 12 and 13 June: Blackmarston School, Barrs Court and Westfield School.
