PUPILS have been given dozens of hi-vis armbands to help them come and go from school in safety.

Taylor Wimpey, the team behind the The Nightingales development on Wickham Road in Fareham, has donated 100 reflective armbands to nearby Uplands Primary School as part of national Road Safety Week.

Emma Charles, assistant headteacher at the Morshead Crescent school, thanked the developer and said: ‘We actively encourage our pupils to walk to and from school – it’s a great way to keep healthy and active and reduces road congestion.

‘However, many are now finding themselves doing their journey in the dark, and we’re keen to make sure they stay as visible and safe as possible.’
