Medics month at Whaplode Primary School was brought to life for around 100 KS2 children when an East of England NHS ambulance crew, Martyn Harrell and Steve Wainwright, visited the youngsters yesterday (Tuesday).

Martyn, whose daughter Eden attends the school, and Steve showed the ambulance and rapid response vehicle to children, the equipment on board – demonstrating its use – and talked about their work.

Assistant head Emma Adie said: “The children were amazed and I think it has actually inspired them. A few of the children have been saying they want to be paramedics or want to work in the medical profession.”

Martyn and Steve returned to the school today to speak to KS1 pupils.
