Walking to school has been made safer for pupils at Pewsey Primary School with a donation of high visibility arm bands as part of a new campaign.

Free flashing and reflective arm bands were given out to Year 5 and 6 pupils to increase their visibility on dark mornings and in the evening.

The campaign is part of work by Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Fire and Rescue and NHS Wiltshire to make roads safer.

Maggie Rae, of Wiltshire Council, said: “It is vital we do everything we can to ensure our children are safe when they travel to school.”

Any remaining armbands will be distributed around other primary schools and be made available to dog walkers, cyclists and runners from fire stations across Wiltshire. Armbands can be collected from various fire stations between 7pm-9pm on Mondays. On Wednesdays, the bands can be collected from Devizes fire station from 6.30pm-8.30pm and Corsham and Ludgershall from 7pm-9pm.
