McCarthy and Stone donates handy road safety reflectors to local school.

A developer of retirement homes is working to keep the youngest members of the community safe during the dark winter months too.

McCarthy and Stone has donated 250 reflective road safety wristbands to Combe Martin Primary School to help keep pupils safe while they walk to school.

Headteacher Damian Railston thanked the company for its gift: “We actively encourage our pupils to walk to and from school; it’s a great way to keep healthy and active and reduces road congestion,” he said.

“However, many are now finding themselves doing their journey in the dark, and we’re keen to make sure they stay as visible and safe as possible.”
