A Cycle Safety Day was completed at the British school at Wotton Under Edge where 4 members of the CL20 Team, 2 Operations (Andrew Hoskins & Peter Hawker) and 2 Commercial (Ben Taylor & Sam Ryan) did a presentation to 100 children at various ages of Key Stage 2. The children were given a guided tour around a Readymix truck which had been brought into the playground.
A very rewarding morning for both the school and CEMEX and a good opportunity to show the local community CEMEX’s focus on Health and Safety. More importantly, the day was organised to help avoid accidents with children and construction vehicles in the future.
The Head Teacher of the school was delighted with the presentation which helped them understand the dangers of LGVs on the road and the school has since recommended us to other primary schools in the area. The kids that attended the presentation were also rewarded with a ‘Goodie’ bag which consisted of a hi-viz jacket, pencils, fun book, ruler and USB stick.
We have made plans to roll this out in all the heavily populated areas of the Cluster from Swansea through to Kingsmead, and already have another one planned for March in Bristol.
