Children from Mawnan School were excited to see the crew from Falmouth Fire Station turn up at their school last week.

The firefighters were presenting the PTA with a cheque for £250, as one of many recipients to benefit from the firework display held by the Fire Station in November.

After presenting the cheque the crew let the children have a go at firing the hose and then spent time showing them the equipment on-board, and the children also learnt about fire safety and how the firemen deal with an emergency.

The donation will go towards new outdoor play equipment.
