Minster donates funds to keep local children safe at school crossing

P1040978

Minster has donated £500 to St Anne’s CE Primary School in Bristol after Abigail aged 8, won Minster’s national Health and Safety Drawing Competition. 

The school will now work with the South Gloucestershire Road Safety team to put up more noticeable safety signage around the school. The main pedestrian access to the school crosses the popular Bristol to Bath cycle path and a lack of robust signage means that the crossing is not as safe as it should be.  

Around 250 children cross the path every day and in November 2012 a pupil was knocked over by a passing cyclist who failed to react to the existing crossing signage. There have been near misses since and St Anne’s head teacher, Sean Quinn, is determined to raise awareness amongst cyclists to proceed with caution around the school.

Health and Safety is our number 1 priority. Have a look at some of the winning entries in the 2013 Health & Safety Drawing Competition.

Overall Winner: Abigail (aged 8)
