Youngsters at William Stukeley Primary School, Holbeach, have taken National Road Safety Week to their hearts with help from Pinchbeck logistics firm Gist.

The school hosted a presentation by Gist staff members Charlotte Elliott and Mick Spiller who talked to children about avoiding accidents, breaking distances and the Green Cross Code.

Teacher Michele Holliday said: “Our children found the session really interesting and they learned a lot about road safety which they were encouraged to pass on to their brothers, sisters and parents.

“We would like to thank the Gist representatives for the fantastic event and their kind donation of high-visibility jackets to help ensure the children’s safety when outside of school.”

Gist chief executive Martin Gwynn said: “I am tremendously proud of what we have achieved with this programme, reaching 32,000 children to date.

“But there is still a child being hurt every 12 minutes on our roads which is why our presenters are passionate about making sure we reach as many children as possible with the message of road safety.

“National Road Safety Week is a great opportunity for us to tell people about what we are doing and we hope many more schools will be encouraged to organise a presentation for their children.”
