PRIMARY school pupils in Forfar and Kirriemuir have been given some timely advice on road safely as the dark nights approach.
Prior to the clocks going back one hour on Sunday, local businesses Alexander Bain Funeral Directors in Forfar and Strathearn Funeral Directors in Kirriemuir visited schools to hand over reflective badges to pupils.
The companies have teamed up again with national road safety charity, Brake, to encourage schools to help make children aware about road safety, in particular when British Summer Time ends at the end of October.
For the third year in a row, Alexander Bain and Strathearn donated a number of high visibility reflective badges to pupils in Forfar and Kirriemuir primary schools.
Collette Campbell from the funeral directors said: “We are helping to raise awareness of the importance of being visible on the road during dark nights.
“With the clocks about to go back, darker mornings and evenings mean that children need to take extra care on their journeys to and from school.”
Badges were given to the pupils last week in time for the clocks changing on Sunday with the advice that the children should “be safe, be seen” when out walking in the dark mornings and evenings.
