CHILDREN in Bridlington have been busy designing new road signs to go up near their school, as part of a road safety drive.

Pupils at Martongate Primary School have taken part in a competition, co-ordinated by PCSO Lynda Anderson, to design a new road safety sign for use near the school, on Martongate.

Now their designs have gone on display at Bridlington’s North Library where members of the public have until the end of September to vote on their favourite one.

Speaking to the Free Press at the time of the competition launch headteacher David Carruthers said: “A number of people had concerns about road safety on the streets around the school, and the idea of this competition is to raise awareness and make our pupils think about safety.”

“I’m very grateful for all the help from PCSO Lynda Anderson and the Road Safety team for the support that they’ve given us in our efforts to make this a safer place for our pupils.”
