CRUCIAL SKILLS

PHOTO:GUARDIAN

MORE THAN 600 local children have been learning ‘crucial' skills for their own safety. They spent two hours learning how to be street and safety wise as well as how to be a good citizen when they took part in a special event called Crucial Crew.

A total of 635 year 6 pupils (aged 10-11) from schools in Ammanford , Llandeilo, Llandovery, Cross Hands and Ystradgynlais travelled to the Apostolic Church Hall, Penygroes, to learn basic but vital skill such as crime prevention and personal safety. Fire, Ambulance, Police, SWALEC, NFU, Trading Standards Department and British Transport Police each gave the children tips and valuable advice.

The information was presented in funny, clever and occasionally dramatic ways, like the chip pan fire opposite or the danger on the railway exercise.
