The official launch of the 2014 Road Safety Calendar, featuring Patch the Road Safety Pooch, took place recently at Antrim Civic Centre.
The calendar features a selection of artwork, designed by pupils from schools within the Borough, to help promote a range of road safety messages to young people.
The Road Safety Calendar has been distributed to all primary schools in the Borough of Antrim for display in classrooms and will give every primary school pupil the opportunity to learn about important road safety issues throughout the year.
Councillor Brian Graham, Chair of Antrim & District Road Safety Committee, saod: “I want to thank every student who submitted a poster for consideration. It was a very difficult task to narrow it down to just twelve, but congratulations must go to the twelve lucky students selected to have their artwork featured in the calendar.
“The calendar is intended to educate and raise awareness on a range of road safety issues in an effort to keep our young people safe and reduce the number of people killed or injured on our roads.”
The 2014 Road Safety Calendar was produced by Antrim & District Road Safety Committee with support from PSNI and Antrim Policing and Community Safety Partnership.
