Road Safety Message from Youngsters

It was a special day for children from Hethersett Woodside Infant and Nursery School when parish council chairman Fred Watkins turned up to present prizes to three winners of a road safety poster competition.  

The youngsters were just some of the local winners in the annual competition organised by Hethersett and the Meltons Road Safety Committee.  

“We had lots of entries and they were very hard to judge. We were not looking for the best artistic posters but the ones that had the best road safety messages,” said Mr Watkins who, as well as being on the parish council, is also a member of the road safety committee. He was accompanied by fellow committee member Philip Loughlin.  

The presentations were made at a special end of half-term school assembly. Six children from the school won prizes, but three have since moved on to Hethersett Junior School. So awards were made to the remaining three - Jack Gorman, Louisa Kenny and Madeline Sharpe.  

This year’s posters, which were produced by children from Hethersett and Little Melton schools, included numerous road safety messages covering high visibility, using pedestrian crossings, holding an adult’s hand when out walking and bike safety.  

“Being safe is so important to us as teachers and as a school and we are delighted to be involved in the annual poster competition as it does heighten awareness. It is also a very pleasant way to round off half-term,” said school deputy head Karen Winter who also pointed out that some of the signs in the village warning motorists about speed limits were based on drawings from children from the school.
