Kingdom donates a 'pop-up cop' to boost road safety
Kingdom Housing Association pops into Newcastle school with a 'pop-up cop' to promote road safety.
Kingdom staff members Dave Roy and Alana Anderson visited pupils and teachers of Newcastle Primary School in Glenrothes to hand over the “pop up police sign” advising drivers to exercise caution when driving near schools.
Dave Roy, Kingdom’s health and safety officer, said: “We take part in the Brake Road Safety Week each year. This year, we decided to donate one of the signs to a local Primary School. The children and teachers at Newcastle PS are running a competition to give the pop up police officer a name.”
Community development police officers Martyn Reidie and Daniel Forbes were there with Dave and Alana to hand over the pop-ups.
They held a question and answer session on road safety where the kids talked about not parking on zig zag’s and pedestrian crossings.
Dave added: "The pop-ups have been working highly successfully in various schools across Fife now for much of the year and I would hope that the story will be the same at Newcastle Primary.”
