Schoolchildren in Thornton are really standing out this winter thanks to a donation of high-viz vests.

Pupils at Sacred Heart Primary School have vests and reflective bands to wear on the way to and from school to ensure they can be seen by motorists.

The donation was made by builders David Wilson Homes from the nearby Hawley Gardens development to mark Road Safety Week.

A school spokesman said: “We believe that walking to school is important and we try to encourage as many pupils as possible to do so, in a safe and sensible fashion.

“It not only benefits the children’s health but they can also burn off some of their energy before the school day begins.”
