South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership
15 Nov 2021

Pupils from across Rotherham have been showing us their bright ideas to help keep communities safer on our roads this winter.

Young people took on the challenge of making or drawing an armband as part of Rotherham Council’s Be Bright Be Seen half-term competition.

And there were some fantastic designs from young people at Maltby Manor, Swallownest, Waverley, Anston Park, Whiston, Springwood and Eastwood primary schools.

“We were absolutely overwhelmed by how creative the entries were – Rotherham definitely has some budding artists out there,” said Joanne Wehrle, manager of South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership (SYSRP).

“The challenge was all about reminding pupils and their families that during low-light conditions, bright colours will help them to stand out in the day and reflective items are helpful at night.

“Well done to everyone who took part. You should be very proud of your work.”

All participants will receive their own Be Bright Be Seen snap band.

Be Bright Be Seen is an annual campaign aiming to protect more vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists.
