Bradwell children crack part of the Green Cross Code in police road safety visit

Posted on 11th March 2013

A class of young children were taken on a short walk around Bradwell to learn how to safely cross the road during a visit from local police.

PCSO Anthony Boswell, from Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team, visited Bradwell CE Infant School, off Church Street, to chat to children about staying safe near roads.

He held a short presentation focusing on how to cross the road safely and what dangers to be on the lookout for, before heading out into the village to test the five- and six-year-olds’ knowledge.

PCSO Boswell said: “We have visited the school on several occasions to talk to the kids about being seen and staying safe and the road safety sessions have always been a hit.

“It’s vital for young children to learn about the dangers of the roads and how they can identify them.

“Showing them how to cross the road safely, whether there is a crossing or not, is a fantastic way for them to put what they know into action and the group were all brilliant.

“Hopefully the visit will help them stay as safe as possible.”
