    Don’t let fire be an unwelcome guest this Christmas

    Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service is issuing a timely reminder that some of these favourite festive traditions such as cooking Christmas dinner, decorating the home and drinking alcohol could have the potential to leave the  celebrations in ruin. Statistics reveal that two fire deaths occurred in December in the county last year.

    The distractions of a crowded house and celebrations can often result in festive cooking being left unattended. And the added influence of alcohol means that
    it’s even more important to stay alert while preparing the Christmas dinner.  Nearly twenty eight house fires were started by cooking appliances in Hampshire last December, resulting in eleven injuries. 

    And while no Christmas party would be complete without a few decorations, the fact is that dry Christmas trees, flammable decorations and stray wrapping paper can all act as extra fuel for a fire sparked by overheated sockets, faulty fairy lights, unattended candles or carelessly discarded cigarettes.

    A recent survey by fire-safe insulation manufacturer Rockwool revealed that more than one in eight people (13%) admitted to leaving their Christmas tree lights plugged in when out of the house, and a further 7% owned up to leaving burning candles unattended in their home.

    Station Manager Ian Wadmore of the Service’s Community Safety team in Hampshire said:

    The hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations can often push fire safety out of our minds.  But in reality, the start of festive celebrations bring a whole cocktail of fire risks into the home – from the distractions of a crowded house while cooking and the slower reaction times that result from alcohol consumption, to the potential dangers of overloaded plug sockets, flammable decorations and unattended candles.

    Christmas is a time for celebrating with family and friends, and we want to keep it that way. By being aware of the risks and making a few simple checks you can ensure that you and your loved ones can celebrate in safety.”

    Here are some top tips to help you celebrate in safety this festive season:

    ·        Ensure you have a working smoke alarm installed on all levels of your home. A working alarm can give you the vital time needed to escape in a fire. Test your smoke alarms regularly and never remove batteries to power presents!

    ·       
    Check on older relatives and neighbours this Christmas to ensure their safety as they are at greater risk from fire.

    ·       
    Never leave cooking unattended.  The majority of fires start in the kitchen so this is a high risk area.  Avoid cooking whilst under the influence of alcohol and always turn off kitchen appliances when you have finished cooking.

    ·       
    Never leave candles unattended. Keep candles out of the reach of children, and away from decorations, cards and wrapping paper, fires, lights and heaters.

    ·       
    Put your cigarette out, right out.  Make sure your cigarette is fully extinguished and take care when
    under the influence of alcohol or tired. It’s very easy to fall asleep while your cigarette is still burning and set furniture alight.

    ·       
    Don’t overload sockets – ensure only one plug per socket.  Always turn off plugs when they are not in use, except those that are designed to be left on, like freezers.

    ·       
    Ensure you switch off fairy lights and unplug them before you go to bed, or leave the house. Check your Christmas tree lights conform to the British Standard (BS EN 60598).

    ·       
    Always use an RCD (residual current device) on outdoor electrical equipment. This safety device can save lives by instantly switching off the power if there is a fault and can be found in any DIY store.

    ·       
    Make sure that everyone in your home knows what to do in a fire – in the event of fire: get out, stay out and call 999

    The Royal School remembers


    On Friday 9 November the pupils at The Royal School Junior held their Remembrance assemblies. At the Senior School, Allen Parton, from Hounds for Heroes came and spoke to pupils and staff about his charity that buys, trains and gives service dogs to people badly injured on active service with the Armed Forces as well as those serving in the Police, Fire and Paramedic services. Allen brought his dog, EJ, with him and demonstrated how he is helped by his dog. A 2 minute silence was observed following the Last Post and Mrs Traviss, the Domestic Bursar, and Rebecca Clarke from Year 7 laid a poppy wreath. The assembly ended with the choir, made up of staff and girls (some of whom have family serving in the forces), singing Sing; the song by the Military Wives and Commonwealth Band. A collection was made with the proceeds going to Hounds for Heroes. At the Junior School the children were shown three short videos, provided by the Royal British Legion, about certain aspects of war and military service and the children read some moving poetry. All the children from Prep 1 to Prep 6 and staff then gathered outside for the laying of the memorial poppy wreath and a minute’s remembrance silence.

    Royal pupils visit Southern Spain – palaces, amphitheatres, Picasso, paella, tapas and much more!

    Over the recent half term break 33 girls from The Royal School’s Years 10 and 11 set off with 3 members of staff, bound for a week staying with Spanish families in Málaga. The group was blessed with two beautiful warm sunny days followed by a couple of cloudier ones with some rain. However, the weather did not stop them from enjoying a packed schedule. Each day the girls met up as a group and had afull and varied programme of excursions and activities. These included day trips to Granada with a visit to the wonderful Moorish palace known as The Alhambra, Ronda – an impressively situated town with the oldest bullring in Spain, Córdoba with its amazing mosque, the fantastic caves at Nerja and, of course, Málaga itself which has a fortress, Roman amphitheatre and is the birthplace of Picasso. Other activities also included a visit to a tapas bar, sampling chocolate con churros and paella, and a morning on the beach. The girls also had a dancing class in which they learnt the rudiments of the Sevillana, a typical Andalucian dance. The girls have returned with a greater understanding of Spanish culture and the language, as well as a real enthusiasm to return to Spain sometime soon.
