and staff from Berrow Pre-School and the reception class at Berrow
Primary School enjoyed a special visit by Burnham's rescue hovercraft
and its crew this week.
charity BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) was invited to bring one
of its hovercrafts, The Light of Elizabeth, to help the children
with their studies on emergency colours.
of the BARB team showed the children their safety equipment and
talked about the different colours which BARB and the Coastguards
wear," said Berrow School's Daycare Manager, Annette Milburn.
"Then, all of the children and staff had the opportunity
to climb aboard the craft."
"The children were invited to ask questions and they came
up with some really good queries."
She added: "The staff from Berrow Pre-School and Berrow
Primary School were very grateful to the crew for coming to visit
and a collection was taken which meant that each child was able
to purchase a pencil and a postcard and make a donation to this
very good cause."
