Newquay pupils safe on the road thanks to bright vests
The Newquay team have donated high visibility vests to First Steps Nursery in Newquay ahead of Road Safety Week. The initiative, by the charity Brake, promotes safety at night.
Clocks have changed
Store director Graham Dunn says: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching.
‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children to and from school. It was fantastic to meet all the kids, especially as it’s vital to learn how important it is to be visible on the roads from a young age.’
Brake is a national road safety charity which exists to prevent deaths and injuries which happen on roads on a daily basis, through campaigns and other funding. The charity also promotes safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies.
