As the poster says (you can click on it to enlarge) there is a special course coming up at the Reaseheath Equestrian Centre on Thursday 9th May.

We are hoping to encourage newly qualified drivers or experienced drivers, who are unsure as how best to deal with overtaking horses on the roads safely or indeed, all road users!

Hankelow on 10th May

Also, as part of our road safety awareness initiative, we will be at Hankelow on Friday 10th May from approximately 1.30pm until 3.30pm, with Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service. On the village green will be their 'Think Car'. This vehicle had been driven by a student from Malbank School, who was involved in an accident and tragically died.

As local people will be aware, there have been several accidents along the A529 and despite Hankelow now having a 30MPH speed limit, drivers are still driving too fast. We would welcome people to come along to Hankelow and have a chat with us there on the day.
