Play equipment helps toddlers improve road safety
The youngsters at Dolton & Dowland Pre-School received the play things with a grant from a local councillor.
YOUNG children will learn how to cross the road safely thanks to a donation from a local councillor.
Torridge District Councillor Rose Lock donated �250 from her annual grant fund to the Dolton & Dowland Pre-School for them to purchase road safety play equipment.
The items include zebra crossings, traffic cones and ‘stop’ signs.
Sarah Ashman, the pre-school leader, said: “The children love playing with these new toys and we have taken them out around the village so they can see real road signs and traffic in action.
“It’s great for their road safety awareness.”
The money comes from Torridge District Council’s councillor community grants scheme.
