A project leading up to bonfire night to help young children understand the fireworks code has been hailed as a success.

Red Watch, of Baldock and Letchworth Fire Station, ran a campaign in local schools, culminating in a poster design competition, which received 200 entries.

Firefighters at the station said they were impressed not only with the standard of the artwork but also the knowledge of the dangers of fireworks which were put across in the designs.

They eventually picked out Rae-Anna Osley as the winner in the five to seven age group and Louise Oldham as the eight to 11 and overall winner.

Both youngsters are pupils at Stonehill School in Letchworth GC.

Their designs were printed into posters and distributed to shops.

Last Friday the girls were presented with a framed copy of their designs, courtesy of Villas Master Framers of Leys Avenue Letchworth, and prize vouchers courtesy of Woolworths.
