SAFETY IN ACTION WEEK WINNERS
June 24 2012
Safety in Action Week is run jointly by Sussex Police and Lewes District Council. It is designed for children of Primary School age and aims to raise their awareness of some of the common dangers they might experience in every day life. The children's understanding of each danger is assessed and one of the many competing schools is adjudged the Winner of the Week. The Rotary Club of Seaford has been associated with the event for many years providing members to help on each day and a cash prize for the winning school.
This year's winners were the class from South Malling Church of England Primary School in Lewes and a special Assembly was held at the school on Thursday 21st June for the presentation of the prizes. Sussex Police were represented by PC Carolyn Ross, Neighbourhood Schools' Officer, who helped organise the event, and the Lewes District Commander, Chief Inspector Jason Tingley, who complimented the pupils on their success. The Chair of Lewes District Council, Councillor Tony Nicholson, with Consort Angela, congratulated the pupils and presented a torch to each of the participants. Dr Isla Sitwell, President of the Rotary Club of Seaford, added his congratulations and presented the winner's cheque.
