Ethan Scott, who attends Highbury Infant School and Nursery on Kerhsaw’s Hill, is a big fan of the emergency servies, in particular paramedics.

He is already a member of St John’s Ambulance, and was in the kids club the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance charity ran.

Unfortunately the air ambulance had to close the kids club – but Ethan still wanted to help.

Ethan mum’s Sarah explained: “The teachers at his school have noticed how enthusiastic and passionate he is about the emergency services and they chose him to be involved in a special group outside class time. Ethan constructed an entire presentation about Herts Air Ambulance.
