Children at Fordham pre-school have been gifted their own high visibility jacket to help keep them safe during the dark winter months.
36 luminous jackets were donated to the pre-school for road safety week in November by housebuilder Ashberry Homes.
Ashberry is building new homes at the Cortlands development nearby.
The pupils, who are aged between two-and-a-half and four-years-old, have also been learning about the importance of road safety with the catch phrase ‘be bright, be seen’.
Pre-school administrator, Kate Stafford, said: “We’re delighted with the donation from Ashberry and the children were very excited to try them on.
“The jackets will be used on an on-going basis as it is important to be safe and seen, especially in the dark winter months.”
Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes, Rachael Gatehouse, said: “It was lovely to see the children so excited about their jackets and wanting to learn about road safety.”
