YOUNGSTERS at Cobbs Infant School in Appleton were warned of the dangers associated with speaking to strangers last Wednesday.

Appleton PCSOs Dave Mahon and Lauren Chin delivered three 'Stranger Danger' sessions to reception, year one and year two pupils at the school, on Wood Lane.

The pair also set pupils a piece of homework to help them stay safer and decrease the risk of danger.

PCSO Mahon said: "We do this each year and it is really important to ensure the children remain as safe as possible.

"It is all about showing them how dangerous speaking to strangers can be and letting them know who they should go to if they get lost.

"The response from the children was brilliant – they were getting really involved and asked us a lot of questions throughout the sessions.

"There was also a Little Red Riding Hood house in the classrooms, as well as a wolf, to help with the talks.

"The teachers were great too and we want to thank them for letting us come in to speak to the children about this very important topic.

"There have been a few incidents in recent months but we are doing all we can to make the area as safe as we can.

"We also set the children some homework asking them to learn their home phone numbers and addresses."
