‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ Road Safety event
Midsummer Place – Saturday 2 November from 9:30am-5pm
Residents of all ages in Milton Keynes are being invited to a free road safety activity day in Midsummer Place on Saturday 2 November. ‘Be Safe Be Seen’ aims to raise awareness of road safety and the ways that people can make sure they can be seen by drivers whether walking or cycling around the borough.
The event, which runs from 9:30am until 5pm, will include lots of fun activities for children and adults, including a blackout tunnel which demonstrates the difference wearing reflective gear can make compared to normal clothing, games and videos on road safety, a mini-street, children’s colouring in area and quizzes. Advice on reflective clothing and how to put lights and reflectors on bicycles will also be available.
There will be plenty of great free giveaways from flashing LED bag-tags to hi-vis wrist and arm bands to keep all the family safe and seen this winter. There’s also the chance to meet the MKFM team who are supporting the event, and will be broadcasting live from Midsummer Place.
For more information on this event please contact Rachel Munday, Communications Officer on 01908 254287 or email Rachel.email@example.com
