Having fun whilst learning – isn’t that just the best thing? That’s exactly what this lively bunch of Hampshire School Children got to recently at a brilliant road safety training event. The Junior Road Safety Officers Champion of Champions event took place on Wednesday 19th June at Eastleigh Fire Station. Eight local schools took part in the battle to be crowned champion. The event celebrates the fantastic work that JRSO’s do to promote Road Safety. Keltic’s contribution? School Crossing Patrol Sign lollipops, of course!
Warrington Council’s School Crossing Patrol Service celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the School Crossing Patrol service with help from their local schools. Melanie McHale SCP Supervisor said:
“The model was made by Infant pupils from a local school. It is a larger than life replica of one of their patrols. They also made the thank you butterflies in a thank you vase. They were brilliant”.
She stood outside on the day. The day went really well and all the patrols enjoyed themselves “

It is a great year to celebrate the School Crossing Patrol Service as it is their 60th Anniversary this year. In honour of this, Keltic Clothing have launched a competition for the best pictures of your celebrations. The winner will receive a bottle of champagne to help with the celebrations.
Westminster Council certainly look like they had a great time. They celebrated with a Stop Sign cake and edible Stop Sign lollipops. They even got a lovely cut glass gift. The Mayor joined in with celebrations along with two of the councils longest serving SCP’s. The gentleman on the left of the picture below has done 33 years service and the lady in the middle has done 15 years service.
Peter Wilson – Westminster Council , also had a limited edition postcard made as an extra treat for his hard working staff. Peter Wilson said the following about the limited addition post cards
“I found this as I collect cartoons specifically Giles and Larry and it was in a book of Punch cartoons ‘Motoring through Punch1900 to 1970’ put together for the Ford motor company to give to franchised garage owners. His widow gave me permission to reproduce a limited print run which could not be for sale.”
Terence “Larry” Parkes (November 19, 1927 – June 25, 2003) was a popular cartoonist from the UK. His work, consisting largely of single drawings featuring an absurdist view of normal life, was published in many magazines and newspapers, particularly Punch and Private Eye. The pen name under which he worked was apparently inspired by the actor Larry Parks.
