Here are some pictures from our recent Macclesfield Crucial Crew event that ran from Monday, 30th September until Monday, 7th October 2019 at Macclesfield Town Football Club’s Moss Rose Stadium.
The ‘‘Crucial Crew’ scheme, coordinated by Child Safety Media and funded by Macclesfield Town Council and Waters Corporation, aims to teach children about important issues that are often overlooked by the curriculum, such as personal safety/ Internet safety, road safety, healthy lifestyles, rail safety, water safety and first aid. Over 700 Year 6 children (10-11 Year Olds) from local primary schools across the borough took part in a series of interactive safety workshops with agencies including Cheshire Police, Gist, School Nurses (Cheshire East 0-19 Service), British Transport Police, the Canal & River Trust and St John Ambulance. The workshops give pupils the unique opportunity to learn valuable skills from the professionals, through practical demonstrations and discussions in real-life situations.
The VIP day was held on Thursday, 3rd October 2019, and invited guests included – Claire Redmond, Senior PA, Waters Corporation, Helena Gowler, Community Engagement and Events Officer, Macclesfield Town Council, The Mayor of Macclesfield, Cllr Janet Jackson MBE, Cllr Fiona Wilson, Macclesfield Town Council, Cllr Neil Puttick, Macclesfield Town Council, Cllr Brian Puddicombe, Cheshire East Council, Cllr Craig Browne, Deputy Leader of Cheshire East Council, Liz Jones, 0-19 Service Lead Cheshire East, Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, Fiona Campbell, Professional Development Lead, and Margaret Bratherton, 0-19 team leader.
