Winter is rapidly approaching: the days are drawing in and it is dark in the mornings and in the evenings. In many cases, it is dark when we leave the house in the morning and dark again when we return to our homes in the evenings. Frost and ice are making an appearance and it is gradually getting colder.
With this in mind, please can we all make sure that we drive with care through our village, keeping our speeds to a minimum and being thoroughly aware of our surroundings and possible pedestrians (both children and adults).
Could parents ensure that children riding bikes wear their helmets and install lights? Now that the mornings and evenings are darker, the children may need their lights to ensure a safe journey to and from school.
