YOUNGSTERS discovered some fascinating facts and had fun on a visit to their local fire station.

The group of children aged two to five from Oundle Community Pre-school went along to the station in Glapthorn Road to meet firefighters and have a closer look at an engine.

Pre-school treasurer Camilla Sherwin said: “The children had a lovely time.

“They had a chance to climb up on a fire engine and even tried on some of the firemen’s kit, which was quite interesting.

“We like to take the children out on visits so that they can explore the community they live in and learn more about their environment.”

The pre-school is based in Fletton House, Oundle, and holds sessions every weekday morning, from 9.15am until 12.15pm.

It can cater for up to 20 youngsters at a time.

Plans are already being made for the pre-school’s next visit which will either be to Ferry Meadows, Peterborough, or to the science laboratories at a local secondary school.
