Royston officers work with school children on speed project
Main article content
Primary school children in Ashwell have been taking part in a community project to tackle speeding in their village.
The children from Ashwell Primary School have been helping to promote the new 20 mph speed limit through the village and officers from the Royston SNT visited the school to explain what speed limits are and why they are important.
The children were then asked to design a poster to put up around Ashwell to highlight the new 20 speed limit using the ‘20’s plenty’ logo. The winning entry was designed by Charlie Sharp from year four.
The children were also asked to look for speed signs when they are out in the car and check the speed their parents are driving. If parents are exceeding the speed the children were asked to tell parents to slow down!
PCSO Chris Brabrook said: “It was great working with the children on this project and I was really impressed by how engaged they were and their enthusiasm for tackling the issue of excessive speed. All of the poster designs were excellent, and I’d like to thank all those that took the time to design one.”
