A poster designed by a pupil from Wilburton Church of England School has been picked to go up around the village in a bid to get motorists to slow down.
Wilburton has seen a number of traffic related accidents in recent years, and a competition started by Cambridgeshire County Council encouraged the pupils at the school to get creative and produce a road safety poster.
Goody bags were awarded to six runner-ups, but the award for the best poster went to Freddie Axton, who was presented with a £25 book voucher by Haddenham County Councillor Bill Hunt and Cambridgeshire County Council Traffic Manager Sonia Hansen.
As well as receiving a voucher, Freddie’s poster design will be incorporated into sets of gates which are due to be erected around the village which aim to reduce traffic in the area.
Cllr Hunt said: “The danger on the roads is particularly bad for children so it’s great that the pupils at the school have got involved.”
