Schoolchildren add a splash of colour to Norwich base

Kinsale Junior School visit Norwich EOC

Pupils from Kinsale Junior School submitted 180 pieces of artwork after they were invited to take part in a competition to brighten up the reopened Hellesdon ambulance station.

Eight children – two from each year – were selected as winners and visited the base in Hospital Lane for a tour on Wednesday (15th July).

They created the pictures after front-line ambulance staff began using Hellesdon ambulance station for the first time since 2007, after a double staffed ambulance and rapid response vehicle were posted there.

The schoolchildren were given a tour of the station and the EOC.

Maria Nethercote, EOC Support Manager, explained to the children what types of calls the Trust receives and how ambulance staff are dispatched to emergencies and acting Duty Locality Officer Alex New also showed them the inside of an ambulance and what medical equipment we use.

The artwork will go on display inside the ambulance station.

The winners were Kezia Barnard and Abi Staff from Year Six, Chloe Cornfield and Keira Divers from Year Five, Rose Wright and Nathan Black from Year Four and Elena Bacon and Maizey Brighton from Year Three.
