The course, held at Woking Football Club’s ground in Kingfield, is organised by members of the Safer Woking Partnership.

It is supported by Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, Surrey Police, British Transport Police, Woking Borough Council, New Vision Homes, the football club and the Children and Family Health Service.

The children found out what it is like to enter a room that is on fire and a “stranger danger” session was led by police officers.

British Transport Police raised awareness of the hazards around railway lines and a new session for 2019 run by the Children and Family Health Service had advice on healthy eating and the dangers of consuming too much sugar.

Jane Spong, head of youth and community at Woking Football Club, said: “We are always very impressed by the mature way in which the young people who pass through the doors handle each different situation, whilst still having fun.”
