Wrexham pupils

Pupils from Ysgol yr Hafod in Wrexham helped celebrate DangerPoint Safety Education Centre‘s 10th anniversary whilst learning key gas safety messages – courtesy of Wales & West Utilities.

The 40 pupils visited the Centre after winning a ‘Top 10 Safety Tips’ poster design competition. As part of the prize, Wales & West Utilities provided transport to and from the Centre and pupils toured the interactive, lifelike facilities to learn about key personal and social safety issues.

Wales & West Utilities is one of DangerPoint’s stakeholder partners and is now into its second year of supporting the Centre. It has an area dedicated to helping to keep children safe from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and teaching them what to do if they smell gas.

DangerPoint, which is based in Talacre in Flintshire, celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a host of celebrations involving schools, partners and other stakeholders.

Opening its doors in October 2005, the Centre has made an invaluable contribution to the education of children, young people and vulnerable adults from across the north Wales area. The award winning charity has, to date, educated over 62,500 visitors with its safety messages.

Competition winner Abigail Griffiths, age 10, won the trip for her class after being judged as the best poster design. She said:

“I was thrilled to win the competition and really enjoyed designing the poster. We do sometimes need reminding of simple steps we can take to stay safe and the trip to DangerPoint was really interesting - I’ve already passed on safety messages to friends and family.

“Everyone in the class was thrilled to visit the Centre and we’d all like to say thank you to Wales & West Utilities for making this possible.”

Wales & West Utilities Communications Manager, Elizabeth Warwick, said: “We were delighted to play a part in DangerPoint’s 10 year celebrations and bring pupils from Ysgol yr Hafod to the Centre.

“We are committed to helping to get key safety messages over to youngsters and our partnership with DangerPoint does just that. These are essential skills that will equip future generations to help keep them safe in their everyday lives.”

Cat Harvey, DangerPoint’s Deputy Manager said, “We are very pleased to be able to commemorate this milestone and are thankful to Wales & West Utilities for the support we have received through our partnership.

“Over the past 10 years over 90 per cent of primary schools from across North Wales have visited the Centre and we are proud of this achievement. We are very much looking forward to the next 10 years.”
