Children display banners to encourage better parking
Banners to encourage parents to think about where and how they park around a South Wales primary school were put on display last week.
Pupils at New Inn Primary School took part in a competition lead by the Torfaen road safety team and Gwent police. They were asked to design a banner to help make parents think about their parking and make it safer for children entering the school. More than 130 children entered the competition and the entries were whittled down to two winners and two runners up.
Alun Jones, head teacher, said: “We are very grateful to everyone who has helped to bring safe parking to everyone’s attention. The children are delighted to see their work on show and being put to good purpose.”
School gate parking is a big issue for schools across the area and many are trying to find ways to encourage parents to park further away and walk to school, or leave the car at home.
