Advice on road safety is once again being given to Brechin youngsters in a bid to help them stay safe on the roads as the dark nights approach.

William Black Funeral Directors has again teamed up with national road safety charity, Brake, to encourage schools to help make children aware of road safety, in particular, when British Summer Time ends and Winter Time begins.

For the second year in a row, William Black is donating a number of high visibility reflective badges to pupils in Brechin primary schools.

“We are helping to raise awareness of the importance of being visible on the road during dark nights,” said Angela Campbell from the funeral directors.

“With the clocks now changed to winter hours, darker mornings and evenings mean that children need to take extra care on their journeys to and from school.”

Pleased with the initiative was Andover Primary School head teacher, Liz Howson, who said: “We are pleased to be once more supporting this initiative by William Black and Brake, which emphasises the importance of road safety to our pupils.”
