YOUNGSTERS met real life heroes who are ready to help them.

Firefighters from Bolton Central’s White Watch dropped by Ladybridge Pre-School to give the youngsters a hand with their project “people who help us”.

Tyra Khan, proprietor of the pre-school, said: “At Ladybridge Pre-School it is of paramount importance that our children have a wide variety of experiences to help them develop and learn.

“Our children have loved learning about people who help us, and it is wonderful that the firemen have given us their valuable time to show how they help us in reality.

“Our children have particularly enjoyed sitting in the fire engine, hearing the siren and using the fire hose. This has been another invaluable experience for our pre-school.”
