CREATIVE pupils in Kelsall and Ashton Hayes won praise from Cheshire Constabulary for their ideas about road safety.
Traffic on roads surrounding both schools has become an issue for local communities and in an effort to raise awareness PC Robin Elliott organised a road safety poster competition.
Pupils designed large posters carrying messages about how dangerous it can be for pupils to walk to school when there is increased congestion during the morning and afternoon school run.
Winners’ designs were described as being simple but effective and eye-catching.
Speaking during Monday’s Kelsall Parish Council meeting, PC Elliott said: “The traffic down at Flat Lane in Kelsall is hideous at times. Has anyone ever considered making that a one-way street? From a policing point of view, I would love to see it as a one-way street.
“The ideal solution would be for less people to drive their children to school but you can’t enforce that.
“I hope the posters will make their way home and make the parents think a bit more.”
PC Elliott selected winners from infants and juniors at Ashton Hayes and Kelsall, each gaining a £40 gift voucher.
