ROAD safety was top of the agenda for children from two Ellesmere Port Schools.
Kids from The Oaks Primary School and St Bernard’s RC Primary were challenged by Police Community Support Officer Eric Harwood to design posters spelling out advice on staying safe on the town’s roads.
PCSO Harwood said: “The number of entries from both schools was staggering and the quality was top notch.
“Having spoken to the teachers it seems the children really enjoyed producing the posters and took the road safety message very seriously.
“Although this was fun for the kids there was a serious aim to the competition which was to build youngsters’ knowledge of the various aspects of road safety.
“There is no doubt this has helped to improve their understanding and I’ve even seen some of the kids telling parents what they should and shouldn’t be doing on the roads.”
Winner at The Oaks was Aneeka Vimmani, with Ashley Wardle and Jake Morris finishing second and third respectively.
There were also eight runners-up who were: Danielle Lockett, Liam Harpur, Lloyd Duffey, Molly McGuinness, Maisha Vimmani, Tom Critchley, Shannon Wardle and Alex Swift.
