Children from Sutton’s Hillocks Primary School have been learning of the dangers associated with road safety, this week, thanks to the help of Peveril Homes.

To coincide with national Road Safety Week (19th–25th November), the housebuilder has donated more than 100 fluorescent arm bands to pupils at the school, in a bid to help them to stay safe and be seen during the darker evenings.

Louise Regan, headteacher, said: “We are very grateful that Peveril has thought of us for the road safety initiative – and I know that our pupils will enjoy wearing the arm bands when they are walking out and about.

“Without companies like Peveril, we wouldn’t be able to benefit from such initiatives, so we are extremely grateful for the donation of the bands.”

Road Safety Week, which runs during 19–25 November, aims to raise awareness of the dangers of using roads. Organised by the charity Brake, the event encourages communities to get involved, offering tips for all road users, no matter what age, to be inspired to promote road safety.
