LV=Streetwise, get involved!
23 Mar 2014
Every year thousands of children are injured in preventable
accidents in the home, on the roads and at play.
LV=Streetwise helps to reduce the chance of accidents happening by helping children to learn about potential dangers in the everyday world around them in a safe, controlled, memorable and exciting venue.
Based in Dorset, it is an award-winning interactive safety education charity - a life sized, indoor "bricks and mortar" "village" of scenarios which are traditionally built scenes from everyday town and country life.
Parish Councillor Geoff Dark has been a Volunteer Safety Guide at LV=Streetwise since March 1999, four months after the Centre opened. His fifteen years of service as a guide happened to coincide with the completion of 500 safety tours and both of these landmarks resulted in the presentation of certificates. Presenting the certificates were Alison Shelton (Centre Manager) and Andy Watkins (Deputy Manager); also present on the photograph were Helen Bromley (Administration Officer) and two Safety Guides Pat and Tricia who have also served as Safety Guides for many years. Geoff has greatly enjoyed all the time spent at LV=Streetwise with parties of children.
If you would like to volunteer to act as a Safety Guide for tours of 1hr 30min with children of 6-7 years or 2 hrs for children of 9-10 years (minimum one tour per month) you would be made very welcome. Usually 30 - 40 children attend at a time and each Safety Guide takes about 6 children accompanied by an adult from the school. To see what goes on, log in to www.streetwise.org.uk and you will be surprised at the extent of the activities.
Residents oppose scrapyard plans
Residents in a quiet road in West Parley are urging ramblers, horse riders and cyclists to join them in opposing a planning application for a scrapyard in their road.
The planning application was submitted to East Dorset District Council in the Summer and attracted numerous objections from residents and horse riders but was withdrawn. Full details of the application are on the dorsetforyou web site – Dorset County Council Ref 3/17/2480. The County Council have asked that previous objectors resubmit their objections to them under the new application number. . more
