FIREFIGHTERS visited a primary school to deliver a special message ahead of Halloween and Bonfire Night.

The crew, from Horwich Fire Station, dropped in on Year 6 pupils at Claypool Primary School, in Salisbury Road.

The visit was part of the Safe4autumn and Treacle initiatives being run by Greater Manchester Fire Service, Greater Manchester Police, Transport for Greater Manchester and other partners.

While fun for some, the two autumnal events can be a source of worry and stress, particularly for older people.

The campaign aims to prevent, tackle and protect against anti-social behaviour and criminal damage.
