SCHOOLS across Hampshire are being invited to enter designs for road safety banners as part of a competition.

Linked to Road Safety Week, which runs from November 18, Recognition Express Southern is joining forces with Brake to run the competition.

Brake, the national road safety charity, organises Road Safety Week and this year’s theme is Tune in to Road Safety.

Children aged between four and 11 will be designing banners encouraging people to tune in to road safety whether they are driving, walking, cycling, skating or running.

Joe Burns, corporate fundraiser at Brake said: ‘Road Safety Week is a community event, so we are always thrilled when local businesses take part.

‘It’s a great way to get children thinking about how to keep themselves safe near roads.’

Winners will have a large-scale banner featuring their design printed for display outside their school.
