A SUPERMARKET giant joined forces with the police to provide pupils with cycle safety tips.

Community champion Michelle Diamond, from Asda Havant, and PCSO Chris Dove, visited St Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School, in Bedhampton.

Chris and Michelle gave out plenty of hints and tips for road safety and the pupils were given sports bottles.

It comes ahead of the completion of the road works on Purbrook Way and Hulbert Road in Bedhampton at the Asda roundabout, and the new pedestrian and cyclist safety scheme that is being put in place by Hampshire County Council.

PCSO Dove said: ‘We had a fantastic afternoon with the pupils at St Thomas More’s school.

‘It’s so important that children understand the importance of cycle safety whilst outside playing with friends and family.’

And Michell added: ‘The pupils were extremely enthusiastic and hopefully they’ve learnt a lot.

‘Fingers crossed the lovely weather continues and they get to put their new cycle safety skills into practice.’
