48 Years as a School Crossing Patrol Officer | Irene Reid | Lancashire City Council

As many of you know, at Keltic we like to give awards to school crossing patrol officers who have completed a considerable amount of years in the job. We recently reached out to the Lancashire region, asking for long-standing SCP’s to come forward. We were thrilled to come across Irene Reid, who has been a school crossing patrol officer in Lancashire for an amazing 48 years. Having recently been to present Irene with her award, here are a few extra words of congratulations, both from us and from Irene’s local council!

Call Out For Long-Serving School Crossing Patrols!

In 2014 Keltic announced a competition. We wanted to find the longest serving School Crossing Patrols in the country. These SCP’s would be given awards and prizes in acknowledgement of their service. The competition turned out to be very popular. We received a huge number of entries, and the hard work of SCP’s all over the UK was recognised. Due to the popularity of the competition we have decided to do it all over again!

Road Safety Week 21st – 27th November

In line with Road Safety week, we thought why not put up a short post to remind everyone of the great road safety products and school crossing patrol uniforms we have to offer! To celebrate we have just launched our brand new brochure! Collect your copy by emailing scp@kelticclothing.co.uk.

Being safe on the roads is one of the most important things to learn, so through road safety education tools such as our exclusive Street Feet kits and role play equipment, this does the trick in teaching children all they need to know in terms of safety.

Not just educational props, we also strive to provide the best School Crossing Patrol uniforms on the market. Our Superior and Standard Stop Range of jackets, gloves and trousers offer the best visibility for Patrols when working in turbulent conditions through the winter.

And we couldn’t finish this post without a quick mention of RSGB which was a huge success again this year in Bristol. Thank you to everyone who visited out stand to say hello and share a cupcake. It was great to chat with new and existing customers.

What Makes the Perfect SCP Stop Sign?

A School Crossing Patrol’s job can be tiring. They work in every weather, on their feet constantly, carrying around a particularly cumbersome object: a stop sign. Five years ago we set ourselves a mission to make SCP’s jobs easier. We decided to drastically improve the SCP stop sign. After a great deal of research on what would make the perfect stop sign, here’s what we came up with.

How Useful is Road Safety Education in Schools?

Happy Children

The summer months are approaching and the days are getting longer. This is children’s favourite time of year. They can more easily play outside, walk to friends’ houses and maybe even make their own way to and from school. But what kids don’t think about are the dangers inherent in these activities. Each year, and particularly in the summer months, an unacceptable amount of children are hit by cars in Britain. According to recent research , road accidents account for a third of accidental deaths among 0-14-year-olds and over half of accidental deaths for 5-14-year-olds. Tragically, many of these deaths are avoidable. The answer is road safety education. This article will discuss how road safety education in schools can significantly reduce the frequency of these incidents, and improve the safety and wellbeing of children in Britain.

Street Feet kits: Road Safety GB Conference

Street Feet road safety gb images

On 18th-19th November we attended the Road Safety GB conference in Nottingham, and what a successful two days it was! With a lot of interest in our stand we got to speak to some lovely people over the course of the event, getting great feedback on our products.

Street Feet

 

This year we promoted our very popular Street Feet kit, which is the ideal educational resource for Road Safety Training. The kit models real life roads and crossings to allow children to practice route planning and road navigation in a safe environment.  It features role-play tabards that help children to understand crossings, lights and signs, and destination mats with which to practice navigation. It’s something that we’re really proud of. To learn more about it just click here.

And Now The Important Bit… Free Food!

 

As with every year at the conference we had the opportunity to meet some wonderful new people whilst catching up with some more familiar faces. To everyone we handed out our edible lollipop signs along with our Road Safety themed cookies. They went down a storm! After several requests from our loyal customers we are looking to bring back the ever popular cupcakes next year!

Thanks!

 

Thank you to everyone who visited our stand and we hope to see you all again next year!
