Vital road safety messages have been depicted in art by children from schools across Richmondshire.

They took part in an annual competition run by North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service - funded by the Richmondshire Community Safety Partnership – to create a design for this winters ‘Be Bright – Be Seen’ campaign.

The overall winner was Daniel Dent from Middleham, whose artwork has been printed on to postcards and given to every school aged child in Richmondshire.

“The quality of the designs has been better than any other year,” said Richmond Fire Station Manager David Pitt.

“It was extremely difficult to choose the winner, but what did stand out was the children’s knowledge of the dangers posed by dark winter nights.

“This awareness will hopefully benefit children and parents alike and compliments the safety partnerships aim of reducing road accident rates involving school children across the district.”

Other individual winners were Mia Auston, Erin Stephen, Emily Clay and Michael Ruocco from Richmond School, and Abigail Lovel from Middleham School.     

The winning school was Richmond School.
