Road safety campaign pops up in town
 
High-visibility vests are being handed out at the OSA pop-up shop in Smith Street to mark Road Safety Week.
The initiative is being overseen by Living Streets Guernsey, which hopes to achieve a better and safer walking environment for islanders.
 
Specsavers support
 
200 yellow vests for children and 50 for adults have been kindly donated to the group by Specsavers in Market Square.  They also donated £500 towards the purchase of additional vests.
Specsavers director, Sarah Burchett says: ‘With darker nights setting in, we feel it’s extremely important for children to be seen. We are delighted to be able to supply the hi-vis vests as we aim to support the local community whenever and as much as we can.’
 
Road safety
 
Living Streets Guernsey chairman Tom Le Pelley said it was the fifth year the charity had used the pop-up shop in Smith Street. 
‘As usual, we will be highlighting a number of road safety issues which affect pedestrians. In addition, we will be giving out free high visibility waistcoats (on a first come first served basis) to members of the public to emphasise our “Be safe be seen' message”.’
Hi-vis items were also purchased out of the funds raised by firms who took part in the dress-down Bright Day on 26 October. 
 
The shop will be open until Friday 23 November, 10 am to 4 pm.
