jackets boost pupils' night safety at Berrow School
safety of youngsters at Berrow School has been boosted this week
with the donation of new fluorescent jackets.
The clothing have been given to the Reception and Year 1 pupils
to help increase their safety when travelling from the school
on dark winter evenings.
Heather Hector, headteacher at Berrow Primary School, has thanked
house developer Persimmon Homes for donating the jackets.
She told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "At this time of year, its
crucial children are kitted out in bright or reflective clothing
and Persimmons fluorescent jackets, which show up in dull
or misty weather and can be picked up by car headlights, will
help increase their visibility."
Nicola Reed, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes
Severn Valley, added: "Fluorescent jackets are a simple way
for children to stay visible during the winter months and we are
delighted to be playing a part in helping to improve their safety."
