A local housebuilder has supported Cults Primary School in a road safety initiative.

Cala Homes (North) and the school teamed up to help this year’s ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ campaign for Road Safety Week.

P7 pupils at Cults received a donation of high visibility vests and draw string bags for use throughout the darker months of the year.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event which ran between 21 and 27 November, organised by road safety charity, Brake.

Morven McKay, deputy head teacher at Cults Primary School, said: “We are extremely grateful to CALA Homes for supplying our pupils with high visibility vests and bags as the children’s safety is our absolute priority.

“This helps keep the children safe whether they are walking or cycling to and from school during these darker months and will be fantastic for projects such as Bikeability.”

The purpose of Road Safety Week is to inspire local communities to take action on road safety and raise awareness of the steps that can be taken to improve road safety and ultimately, save lives.

Fraser Carr, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (North), said: “We are delighted to work alongside Cults Primary School to support Road Safety Week this year.

“Our team thoroughly enjoyed meeting the school’s P7 pupils, and we hope the vests and bags will prove invaluable as the darker nights draw in.”

CALA Homes’ Rosefield Gardens development is located close to the centre of Cults village and plans were recently announced for another development named Cults Park.
