Beavers learn road safety

Have your say

A BEAVER group has been learning how to stop, look and listen.

Red Lodge Beaver Group was shown the importance of road safety by Mildenhall Safer Neighbourhood Team on Monday.

PCSO Tim Hartup visited the group at The Millenium Centre to get the safety message across.

He said: “We had a short discussion about what the Beavers thought the meaning of the words ‘speed’, ‘fast’ and ‘slow were followed by a demonstration of how we carry out speed checks and the equipment we use.

Green Beaver Linda Arnold played her part in the demonstration, getting behind the wheel to illustrate speed and show how the speed radar gun worked.

PCSO Hartup said: “The intention of the talk was to get the youngsters to think about and begin to appreciate the speed of road users whether they be cars, lorries, bicycles or even scooters.”
