Pupils design mural for Prescot Community Police and Fire Station

Pupils from a Knowsley primary school have been competing to create a new mural for Prescot Community Police and Fire Station.

Youngsters from St Mary and St Paul’s CE Primary School were invited to create a police-themed picture to represent the station which was opened in January. 

The picture will be used to create a paving stone mural outside the station which will be unveiled in the spring and will match the fire’s service mural which is already in position outside the station.

A total of 15 designs were created by youngsters and submitted to the Police and Crime Commissioner, Jane Kennedy, who chose a brightly-coloured picture by Year 2 pupil Fryderyk as the winning entry.

To thank the school for its contribution, more than 50 pupils and staff were invited to the station to have a tour and give the young people the opportunity to look around a police van and fire engine and try on the uniforms.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Cllr Emily Spurrell, joined the visit to announce the winner and help show pupils around. She said: “It was a pleasure to meet the pupils and thank them for their efforts in designing a police-themed mural for Prescot Community Fire and Police Station. 

“There were some fantastic pictures and it was a hard choice, but Fryderyk’s design was clearly a winner. I’m now looking forward to seeing his picture brought to life outside the station.

“I’d like to thank St Mary and St Paul’s CE Primary School for taking part in this initiative and it was great to spend some time with the children as they took a tour of the facilities in Prescot.”

Headteacher at St Mary and St Paul’s CE Primary School, Iain Parks said: “Our hope is to give the children opportunities that stick in their mind and develop their aspirations for the future. This visit did just that, with many of our pupils expressing their desire to work for both the Police Force ad Fire Brigade in the future.  

“We are hugely grateful to the Commissioner, Jane Kennedy, her Deputy Cllr Emily Spurrell and the team at Prescot Community Police and Fire Station for this experience. 

“Fryderyk’s work was exceptional and we look forward to visiting in the Spring when his mural is unveiled”.

The purpose-built facility, situated at the junction of Manchester Road and Cables Way, houses both the town’s firefighters and the local policing team, as well as providing meeting space for voluntary and community organisations.
