Farm safety lessons for youngsters
SCHOOL children from Cornwall had lessons in how to stay safe on farms and in the countryside.
Youngsters at Fourlanesend Community Primary School, Cawsand, took part in two sessions about safety around animals and electricity.
Pupils were introduced to campaign mascot and life-sized cow Maisie Mootual.
The FarmSafe for Schools initiative was launched by Cornish Mutual and is aimed at children aged between five and 11.
Safety expert and former PE teacher Jason Cole, part of the project, said: "It is important that all children are given the opportunity to learn about food and farming in our beautiful countryside.
"This project goes some way to provide them with the tools to stay safe when they are out and about. Not only might they go on to choose careers in the countryside or live in rural settings, but we hope they will spend more leisure time there as they grow up appreciating farming and the countryside for all it has to offer.
"Giving them a set of skills to stay safe is truly something of value of their entire life."
