Pupils at Berry Hill Primary School in Mansfield have received a donation of 35 hi-vis vests from David Wilson Homes East Midlands to help them remain safe and seen whilst walking to and from school on darker winter nights.

The hi-vis vests were donated by the home builder as part of its support for Road Safety Week.

Kerry Senior, teacher and road safety lead at the school, said: “We will make sure the vests are well used by the school.

“They will come in very useful in future off site visits and our ventures out and about in the local community.”

John Reddington, managing director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, added: “With many of our developments having schools located close by, we want to ensure pupils remain safe and visible as the nights draw in.

“We are supporting Road Safety Week, helping the children to stay seen, whilst out and about in the local community.

“The vests are certain to benefit the pupils in their future commute to school throughout the winter.”
