Pupils offer town firm latest designs

A DROITWICH-based flood defence company welcomed creative pupils from a Weston-Super-Mare school for visit just before Christmas.

Youngsters at Becket Primary School in Worle impressed bosses at UK Flood Barriers with their knowledge about flood barriers and flood prevention that they were invited to take a look around the company’s Spa base.

The year five pupils identified UK Flood Barriers via research online and contacted the team to tell them about some of the flood barriers they had designed as part of their project on flooding.

During the tour, UK Flood Barriers chief executive Frank Kelly even got staff to produce one of the flood defence designs the children had created.

“It is fantastic to see such enthusiasm amongst such young individuals,” he said.

“Flood defence is an important matter and if pupils of this age are informed on the issues involved, then perhaps a new

generation will grow up more aware of how to protect themselves.”
