Children Stay Safe in Sheffield

Children and Families that use Sheffield’s award winning Pitsmoor Adventure Playground were busy learning vital safety lessons over the half term holidays. The sessions throughout the school holidays delivered clear messages on Fire and Road Safety and the importance of being visible throughout the winter months now that the clocks have gone back. The Dr Bike clinic was also in attendance to do checks prior to winter and to make minor repairs and high viz jackets were issued with the children personalising their own jackets. Frankie aged 10 said ” I got a free jacket and I will wear it when dark.” Patrick Meleady charity Manager said” We’ve had a super week sharing safety messages and I would like thank South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, South Yorkshire Police and Dr Bike for ensuring we’ve been able to give out clear and relevant information, our children learnt so much.”
