Taunton Specsavers put road safety firmly in their sights this Road Safety Week with the gift of free high-visibility vests for adults and children while stocks last.
The locally run business located on East Street offered children’s vests available from aged three to eight and adults vests in size large, ideal for wearing over winter coats.
A message from the store director
Emma Denham, Specsavers Taunton store director, said: ‘We are keen to support the local community in any way we can. What better way to highlight road safety than ensuring local children are safe when they’re out and about than with high visibility vests. The vests are ideal for school groups and families alike.’
