A visit to Caerphilly County Borough Council’s road safety marquee at the Big Cheese Festival turned out to be a prize winning experience for one local resident who won a mountain bike.
300 people entered the road safety competition, and Alison Young, who correctly answered four questions, was the winner.
Alison said: “I did a cycle confidence course last year but did not have my own bike – now I will be able to cycle to the train station to get to and from work.”
Hundreds of people of all ages took part in activities at the road safety marquee, including finding faults on two very dilapidated bikes – which gave the road safety team an ideal opportunity to remind the public of the importance of wearing a helmet.
Children were invited to design their own badges with a road safety theme as a long term reminder to keep safe on the roads.
