Have your say

YOUNGSTERS have been donated 25 high-visibility jackets to help keep them safe when out and about.

Staff at the Southern Co-operative store in Great Southsea Street gave the jackets to the children at St Jude’s Church Nursery in Southsea.

It followed a request by the mum of a child at the nursery.

Nursery manager Jan Parkins said: ‘The SouthernCo-operative kindly helped with supplying high-vis jackets a few years ago for our walking bus which goes twice a day from the nursery to the school.

‘As we’re now taking the children out and about more and further afield, we needed more and really appreciate the help that The Southern Co-operative has once again given.

‘The jackets will help us to see all our children much more easily and keep them safe.’

The nursery looks after up to 60 children aged between two and four per session during term times.

Area manager Dips Hathi said: ‘It’s good that The Southern Co-operative can give practical community support in this way to keep local children safer when on outings; we were more than happy to help.’
