Artful youngsters urge drivers to slow down in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 16th Mar, 2020   0

ARTFUL youngsters are hoping to grab the attention of speeding drivers in Warwick.

New 20mph limit signs on the town’s Chase Meadow housing estate include artwork by pupils from Aylesford Primary School.

Coun John Holland said “The children have done a wonderful job designing art work for our signs.

Six 20mph signs have been made and they are all different. This is an important contribution to safer routes to school. It is a community project. There is no doubt that reducing speed improves road safety.”

Aylesford headteacher Angelique Edkins said the school had enjoyed taking part in the project.

She said: “It has been a pleasure to be involved in the ‘Safer Routes to School’ initiative.

“The involvement of our pupils and parents has been a vital part of the process and we are delighted to see the signs in place, promoting a greater awareness of the need to reduce speed and exercise due caution on our roads.”

Coun John Holland, Aylesford Primary School head Angelique Edkins, James Ward of County Highways and the six pupils whose designs feature on the new speed limit signs.
