Release Date: 
Thursday, March 14, 2019 - 11:00

Corby Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Management and Neighbourhood Policing Teams will be talking about road safety nest week to pre-school groups as part of a national campaign.

The BEEPBEEP programme runs on Wednesday 20th March and is overseen by national Road safety charity, Brake. The initiative educates children between the ages of 2 - 5 years old on basic messages around road safety. The Corby campaign will be delivering to approximately 10 pre-school and child minder groups. Activities will include hand painting sessions to reinforce the key message of holding hands with a grown–up at this age, followed by an exciting visit from a Police Officer and their vehicle.

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Bob Eyles said:

‘The BEEPBEEP campaign continues to be an important part of our ongoing school education programme. According to road safety charity, Brake, between 2014-15, the number of child fatalities (0-15 years) in the UK rose by 2%.’

PC Mark Walker from the Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team said:

‘It’s important young children start learning about how to stay safe near roads and the dangers of traffic from an early age. The BEEPBEEP  campaign  is a  great  opportunity  to  get  those  important  messages  across.’
