Health and safety talk at Mereside primary school

Mereside Primary School in Blackpool

2nd May 2007

Ivor joined Walter Carefoot & Son (Construction) to help deliver a health and safety talk at Mereside Primary School in Blackpool. Ivor had great fun meeting the children, touring the classrooms and giving fun packs to each pupil.

The children took part in an exercise to identify and explain the purpose of Ivor’s safety equipment.  All the staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed meeting Ivor and, as a memento, were presented with a CD of the photos taken during his visit.
