The Falkirk opticians has donated high visibility vests to Comely Park Nursery located within the primary school. 

Stay safe on the streets
The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on Falkirk’s streets by being clearly visible to motorists.

In the past two years, the opticians has supplied more than 300 vests to schools in the area including Carronshore Primary School and GO Kids after school club which operates in a number of schools including Victoria Primary School.

High visibility vest initiative
Store director at Specsavers in Falkirk, Jonathan Cawley, said: ‘We’re very pleased to have been able to supply Comely Park Nursery with vests. 

‘Our high visibility vest initiative is becoming well known in the area – we’ve even started to get parents and relatives popping into the store to ask if we can provide vests for their child’s class.

‘We always do our best to fulfil each request as it’s so important to make sure children can be seen easily on the streets – especially in the dark.’

Lynette Wilson, acting senior early years officer at Comely Park Primary School, says: ‘One of the youngsters’ relatives asked Specsavers in Falkirk if they had any spare vests for the nursery after she heard about the scheme.

‘The vests are fantastic and very handy for trips as they make it easy to spot every child in our group.’
