Crayke Kids Are Road Safety Champs
10:42am 2nd January 2014
Two primary school pupils have been presented with awards by North Yorkshire Police for designing winning posters in a road safety competition.
Archie Wright and Jack Walker, who are both aged 10 and pupils at Crayke Primary School, were presented with certificates and bike lights by Deputy Chief Constable Tim Madgwick, who made a surprise appearance at their morning assembly on 18 December 2013.
The competition was open to all year five and six pupils at primary schools in the Easingwold area during Road Safety Week in November.
The posters had to be designed to highlight the dangers of winter cycling, road safety and cycle security.
DCC Madgwick said: “It was great to be able to attend Crayke Primary School and present the prizes in person. There were some fantastic posters designed but Archie and Jack were worthy winners.
“Road safety is an important issue, especially at this time of year, and I am pleased that young people in Easingwold had the opportunity to get involved in the competition and think about how they can keep themselves and other people safe.”
The competition was run by PCSO Kim Laws, of Easingwold Safer Neighbourhood Team, with Broadacres Housing and North Yorkshire County Council’s Road Safety team kindly providing the prizes.
