School Safety Event In Wales

A cracking CEMEX UK team went to a school local to our Halkyn Quarry to present to over 150 pupils about road safety.  The team were: Les Grabarz, Area Logistics Manager; Andy Edwards, Halkyn Quarry Manager; Elizabeth Young, Communications and Public Affairs; Tom Colley, Commercial Haulage Manager; Mark Smith, Lead Driver, and Driver Apprentices Nathan Adams and Alyn Davies. They supported one of our biggest school events to date at Ysgol Rhos-helyg County Primary School, Rhosesmor, Flintshire.

This school supports the local villages near to our Halkyn Quarry and they presented to over 150 pupils and staff about the key points on road safety and tipper truck exchanging places experience.  The pupils got to sit in the cab and learn about how key it is to be seen and be safe and to look out before you step out.

The vulnerable road user message on pedestrian and cyclist road safety is key amongst this age group and is part of our School Road Safety Educational Engagement and latest Pedestrian Safety programme.

With the onset of the school holidays it’s great to see this key message being shared with our local communities and a big thanks to the team who did a great job on the day.

Andy Edwards, Quarry Manager at Halkyn and Forest Hill, commented: “On a personal note, this being my old Primary School it gave me great joy to return with our team to discuss road and pedestrian safety. We all had a great day with plenty of interaction from all the children #best for communities!!”
