Specsavers in Ashford has donated 200 high visibility vests to schools to raise awareness about Road Safety Week.

Road Safety Week

The store gave the vests to Victoria Road Primary School, High Halden School and Phoenix Community Primary School.

Road Safety Week (17-23 November) is an initiative by the charity Brake, which strives to prevent accidents on the roads.

Winter precautions on the road

Store director Clive Perry said: ‘It’s essential that we see an increase in road safety this winter.

‘We want to make sure children are visible on the roads and have taken all precautions to make their walk to and from school safer.’
