East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has revealed the result of its Christmas Card Competition.
Local children were asked to draw a festive picture which included safety messages. The prize on offer was a £25 National Book Token gift card. Around 150 entries were received.
Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive Des Prichard said:
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who spent time taking part in our contest. The standard was so high that it was impossible to choose just one winner – so we have ended up with four. Congratulations to Octavia, Tom D and Will S from Dallington School and Brooke from St Paul’s School.”
Octavia’s included lots of important advice – such as a reminder about turning Christmas lights off when you go to bed. Will’s picture had another great message aimed at making sure you have a visit from Father Christmas not a visit from us this festive season.
Tom’s entry was very colourful – we hope the firefighting snowman manages to save all the presents. And we liked Brooke’s balancing Elf – although we’d recommend you use a proper step ladder rather than a reindeer to reach your smoke alarm to test it!”
The pictures will now be turned into cards which East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service will use this Christmas.
