The team went to the Lancashire finals where they were triple award winners, scooping the titles for Best Trade Stand, Best Presentation, and Best Overall Company, and will now represent Lancashire in the North West Finals.

“They are an excellent team who have created a worthwhile product," said their teacher, Polly Clegg. "The book informs and educates children on the dangers of fire in the home and they have worked so hard.”
