Youngsters have been sharing their road safety knowledge with the leader of Fenland District Council.

Councillor John Clark went along to the Blackberry House Day Nursery in March, which is supporting the Children’s Traffic Club.
Cambridgeshire County Council is offering free road safety packs to youngsters in nurseries and pre-schools, with books, DVDs, cards and stickers given to the children to take home at staggered intervals through the year.

Cllr Clark said: “The Children’s Traffic Club aims to reduce casualties in a fun and interactive way by building risk awareness skills, and engaging young children together with parents and carers promoting lifesaving road safety messages. I hope that other nurseries in the Fenland area will sign up for this award-winning scheme.”

Nursery manager Polly Mallett said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in The Children’s Traffic Club, it is so important our children learn these life skills at an early age and we are looking forward to working with the council’s road safety team.”
