YOUNGSTERS at an Inverkeithing nursery have been spreading the word about road safety.

Pupils at Treetop Family Nurture Centre on Hillend Road even received a visit from police officers last week as part of their campaigning.

Rachel Marshall, acting headteacher, said: "A recent learning focus has been road safety.

"The road safety charity, 'Brake', believe that creating road awareness from a young age is an important way to improve the safety of our roads for everyone.

"The children at Treetop took part in a 'Brake' road safety campaign on Wednesday 22nd June to promote safe driving in their local community.

Families took part in a walk through the town, where pupils held posters describing what they had been learning.

Ms Marshall added: "Children aged two to five walked from the nursery to Inverkeithing train station accompanied by parents and nursery staff.

"The children promoted the road safety messages that they have been learning about by displaying posters.

"This road safety walk followed on from a community police input at nursery where children listened to, and asked, questions of police officers to further understand the role of the police in promoting road safety.

"The children and families at Treetop Family Nurture Centre wish you all safe travels by feet, car or public transport!"
