Year 5 Fire Station Visit Featured

Year 5 children at Thongsley Fields enjoyed an exciting morning of extracurricular education at Huntingdon Fire Station on Thursday 16th April.

They learned about Dog Safety from the education team at Wood Green, with many pointers to a good common sense approach to respecting and interacting with dogs.
