Four young people from Medway have been awarded prizes for their clothing designs to make road users more conspicuous when walking by the roadside.
Budding fashion designers aged between 5 and 16 were invited to come up with creative ideas for a high visibility outfit or accessory, as part of a campaign by Medway’s Safer Journeys team.
The winner, Elsa Finch (7) from The Pilgrim School, came up with a bright yellow and purple poncho, which will now be made into a real garment.
Cllr Phil Filmer, portfolio holder for frontline services, said: "Getting children to wear high visibility clothing is one of the easiest ways of reducing the likelihood of them becoming a pedestrian or cycling casualty.
“But getting children to wear it is not always easy. This competition has been a successful and enjoyable way of promoting the Be Bright Be Seen message for children of all ages."
