Between 6 and 23 June, over 1,400 Year 6 children, from 23 different schools across the Borough, attended Elmbridge Junior Citizen which is the largest number of children to take part in the scheme both in the Borough and across Surrey in recent years.
Junior Citizen is a great way for children to learn vital safety lessons such as first aid, fire safety, internet safety, railway safety, water safety and stranger danger.
To gauge the impact of the recent Elmbridge Junior Citizen child safety event, the Elmbridge Community and Safety Partnership asked the participating children to enter a picture competition. The winning entrant would receive vouchers to the value of £50 to spend at a store of their choice.
The winner was Freya, a Year 6 pupil at St. Lawrence CE (Aided) Junior School in East Molesey. Freya was presented with her prize by Nic Martin (from Elmbridge Borough Council), PC Phil Jebb and PCSO Jasmine Reed at the school awards assembly on Thursday 21 July 2016.
