Children in Hayfield learn all about road safety from their local policing team

Posted on 13th November 2014


Children at a Hayfield nursery have been learning all about the importance of road safety following a visit from their local policing team.

PCSO’s Lee Baker and Jack Barlow from the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team  headed into the Blue Grass Purple Cow Nursery as part of Children’s road safety class topic.

The officers attended the nursery on Chapel Street, Hayfield, during the day on Thursday, October 30.

PCSO Lee Baker form the local policing team said: “Visits into local schools and nurseries are a great way for the children to get to know their local policing team, the work that we do to help keep their community safe, and where they can come for help.

“During our visit we spoke to the children about the importance of staying safe while out near the roads, and they were able to practice this using the pelican crossing play equipment at the nursery.”

Manager at Blue Grass Purple Cow Nursery, Gemma, added: “We love visitors to our nursery and the children were especially excited when PCSO Lee Baker and PCSO Jack Barlow came to talk to us about road safety.

“They gave us all great advice about keeping safe near roads during dark nights and they gained so much from it as part of our road safety week.”

To speak to the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
