IT has been a busy, yet informative, week for youngsters at Carlton Colville Primary School.

Teaming up with Brake, the national road safety charity, a series of events have been held throughout the course of this week as part of Road Safety Week.

And with support from Suffolk County Council's road safety officer Ann Battershill, and local community police support officer Justin Winn, funds have been raised for the national Beep Beep campaign.

With junior road safety officers Alex Castleton and Jasmin Connell patrolling outside the school in Hall Road, role play activities, traffic and road safety talks in assembly, posters created and Beep Beep fundraisers held - organisers hailed the week a success.

And one of the highlights was the junior road safety officers and their co-ordinator Maxine Dalziel hitting the streets in front of the nursery and the school at various times to issue on the spot parking “fines”.

The orange traffic warning notices - which were issued to people who parked on yellow lines - included the following message: “50p parking fine; parking here could cost a child's life; parking here stops visibility; parking here blocks the road for oncoming traffic; parking here puts children and adults at risk!”

And with the message sent out to the “offenders who do not park safely” that they are not keeping everyone safe, the 50p instant fines were issued to raise funds for the Brake charity.
