FIREFIGHTERS received thanks following a visit to Bolton Lads and Girls Club last month.
Bolton Central’s Blue Watch members went to the club in Spa Road on Friday, January 20, when the crew talked with young club members about a host of hot topics.
Watch Manager Ian Read said: “The link that we have with Bolton Lads and Girls Club is really important, with the aim of having a positive impact on the young people in the area.
“During the recent visit we talked about antisocial behaviour, including malicious 999 calls and deliberate fires.
“The youngsters then had a look at the fire engine and squirted some water, and had the opportunity to look at the fire gear used by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
“We hope that this will be the first of many visits with CPR training already scheduled in for the spring.”
Following the visit, staff members from Bolton Lads and Girls Club got in touch with the Service to express thanks and say how much the young people enjoyed themselves.
