Meet the team
Kiddie Cops Event at St Andrews School, Chedworth
PC Victoria Stinchcombe and PCSO Andrea Shutt joined parish councillor John King, Community Speed Watch volunteer Fred Shaftoe and the year 5 and year 6 children at St Andrews School, Chedworth, for a ‘kiddie cops’ presentation as part of a Road Safety Partnership initiative to improve road safety.
Officers discussed the history of speed limits, the dangers of vehicles speeding, the consequences of speeding and fines given by Police. The children were able to ask questions and practice using a speed detection device as they monitored how fast each of them could run.
The youngsters were challenged to enter a competition to design a Fixed Penalty Notice, alerting motorists that pupils’ lives could be put at risk by speeding motorists. The winning entries won book tokens, which were generously donated by Chedworth Parish Council. All the children were awarded a personalised 'I am a Road Safety Champion’ certificate.
Road safety is a great subject in which to engage children and young people. It's a subject even the youngest children know something about because everyone uses roads and road danger impacts on everyone. It’s also a vitally important subject. Road crashes are a major cause of death and injury among the young, with the risk rising as children reach secondary school age and have more independence and young drivers and passengers facing significant risks.
Danger from traffic is also a big factor in whether children and young people are able to walk and cycle to school, to the park or to see friends and therefore their ability to be healthy and socially active.
Birdlip Neighbourhood Watch Event
Members of Birdlip Neighbourhood Watch (NW) recently had a stall at the village's Christmas Fair. The volunteers took the opportunity to raise crime prevention awareness in response to a local increase in shed and garage burglaries. Visitors to the stall were handed advice leaflets and details of the popular Rural Watch scheme, as well as having the opportunity to purchase special 'SmartWater' forensic property marking kits.
Afterwards, NW Co-ordinator Bev Smith said, "It was good to be represented at this popular village event, which also served to raise the profile of the newly-relaunched NW Scheme. The SmartWater kits that we sold will certainly make useful stocking-fillers on Christmas day!"
Rendcomb College Road Safety Day
Years 3/4 and 5/6 pupils who attend Rendcomb College, Nr Cirencester worked alongside PCSO Andrea Shutt and PCSO Beverley Williams to raise awareness of how fast vehicles are driving through the grounds.
The site does have a speed limit. However, pupils and staff along with works manager Peter Cairns, have become increasingly concerned that busy parents and staff are 'speeding' when coming and going from the site.
The children looked at designing their own 'Fixed Penalty Notice' (speeding ticket) to be issued to those found to be driving too fast - the winning entry had the very catchy message;
Think! - If you drive madly it could all end badly
It is hoped that this exercise will promote the need for driving within speed limits and according to road conditions, not only on school grounds but on the public highways.
