Kids encouraged to be seen and be safe

ADVICE on road safety is once again being given to Forfar and Kirriemuir youngsters in a bid to help them stay safe on the roads as the dark nights approach.

Alexander Bain Funeral Directors in Forfar and Strathearn Funeral Directors in Kirriemuir have again teamed up with national road safety charity, Brake, to encourage schools to help make children aware of road safety, in particular, during the darker nights in winter.

For the second year in a row, Alexander Bain and Strathearn are donating a number of high visibility reflective badges to pupils in primary schools in the Forfar and Kirriemuir area

“We are helping to raise awareness of the importance of being visible on the road during dark nights.

“With the clocks now changed to winter hours, darker mornings and evenings mean that children need to take extra care on their journeys to and from school,” said Rod McLaren from the funeral directors, who popped along to Letham Primary School last week, to distribute reflective badges to primary one to three kids.

“We are pleased to be once more supporting this initiative by Alexander Bain, Strathearn and Brake, which emphasises the importance of road safety to our pupils,” said Karen Frain, head teacher at Letham Primary School.
