Children in Bradwell have been learning all about road safety following a visit from their local Safer Neighbourhood team.
PCSO Anthony Boswell from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team visited Bradwell Pre-School on Thursday, October 23 to speak to the group about the importance of staying safe while out near roads.
The children had the opportunity to look around a police vehicle and learn all about the equipment that police community support officers carry to help them to do their jobs.
PCSO Boswell from the local policing team said: “Visits such as this are a great way for the children to meet their local police and learn about the work that we do to help keep their community safe.
“I spoke to the children about road safety and the importance of staying with parents or guardians, and checking that the road is properly clear before crossing.
“I also spoke to the group about taking safety measures, such as wearing a helmet, when out playing on their bikes.”
Wendy Riley, Manager at Bradwell Pre-School, added: “The children really enjoyed their visit from PCSO Boswell and learnt all about his role in keeping us safe, road safety and the importance of wearing a safety helmet while riding their scooters as well as on their bikes.
“The visit finished with a look around the police vehicle, and the children took up the chance to sit in a real police car.”
