FINSTALL children have been learning about road safety after a number of traffic and parking problems in the village.

A group of parents have joined forces to form Finstall First School Road Safety Group with the aim of teaching their youngsters the importance of road safety, focusing on driver awareness and the highways in the area.

The children have also been having extra road safety lessons from a local road safety officer as well as Bikeability classes to improve their cycling proficiency.

And they have been taking part in a sponsored walk to raise money for the ‘Brake’ road safety charity and the school.

Parent governor Juliette Fleming said they had already noticed a difference with more people walking and cycling to school.

She added: “Together we really are making a difference in road safety around our school, helping to protect our children and the children of the future.”
