Pupils from the St Germans Primary School enjoyed a tour of the village’s pumping station on Tuesday.
Youngsters in the Fireflies class, aged between five and seven, are pictured above during the visit, in which they learned about how the station works.
Class teacher Rachael Moore said: “It was good to give the children first-hand experience of our village, which they’ve learned a lot about now. They found it really informative”.
The station uses cutting edge equipment to help protect the area from flood risk.
“They were particularly taken with the grabbers”, Mrs Moore said.
