Road and cycle safety talk for youngsters in Bradwell

Posted on 26th June 2017

An officer from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team have spent time talking to youngsters in Bradwell about the importance of road safety.

PCSO Anthony Boswell visited pupils at Bradwell Infants School to give a talk staying safe on the roads and when out and about during the visit on Monday, June 12.

He spoke to the group to highlight the issue of road safety and the importance of being seen when out on the road in order to stay safe.

They covered advice around safe places to cross, ‘Stop, Look and Listen’, to wear high visibility clothing, not running across the road and using bikes, scooters or skateboards safely.

PCSO Boswell said: “Visits like this are a great opportunity for us to head out into the community to speak to youngsters about road safety.

“Children can be more vulnerable when crossing the roads and out and about, so we’re pleased to be able to support and help them learn about how to be safe.”

Officers from our local Safer Neighbourhood teams make regular visits to schools to offer safety advice and help engage with youngsters.
