As you can see from our photographs we had a good day on the river. The children were able to help someone who was in the water, learnt what to do and say in an emergency and take a look around a fire engine. Mrs Moore even dressed up in a firefighter's uniform to become our own Fireman Sam for a short while!
Our trip on the ferry was very exciting (and windy). The Coastguard organised a visit from their boat, jet-ski and helicopter. As the helicopter came near to the ferry we could actually see the equipment inside and wave to the pilot. As he flew closer we all got soaked by the spray from the river!
As a special treat we were invited up on to the bridge to see the controls and meet the crew.
