A YOUNGSTER is buzzing with excitement after winning a road safety competition and safety vests for his school.

Kieran Waite, eight, who attends Warmsworth Primary School, won a Doncaster schools’ competition run by police community support officer Scott Christie, Youngsters had to design a logo for the campaign to stop people parking on yellow lines and zig zag lines outside school gates.

Kieran’s design of a bumble bee, called PC Bumble, won him first prize. Kieran, of Warmsworth, has seen his design come to life in the shape of a large stand up figure and won a certificate, £20 of vouchers and a trophy for his school at the time.

Now he has received a number of high visibility vests and white baseball caps, complete with his logo, for his school.

A number of hi-vis vests and baseball caps will also be presented to a further 24 primary schools in the west of Doncaster, including those in Edlington, Mexborough, Denaby, Conisbrough, Sprotbrough, Scawsby and Warmsworth.

Money from St Leger Homes’ Estate Improvement Fund and donations from tenants’ and residents’ associations helped to fund the road safety project, which includes big banners outside schools urging parents to park sensibly, not on yellow lines and not to park anywhere else in a dangerous or illegal manner.
