Lalika and Nicole win Crucial Crew poster competition

Two Radwinter Primary School pupils have won the top prize in a poster competition run by the Uttlesford Community Safety Partnership (CSP).

Lalika and Nicole, who were both in year 6, worked together on the poster as part of this year's Crucial Crew programme. They each received a £15 voucher.

Cllr Maggie Sutton, Uttlesford District Council's Portfolio Holder for Communities and Local Partnerships and Chair of the CSP, said: "Congratulations to Lalika and Nicole - their poster had a very clear message and was presented excellently. It was even more appropriate that it was in working together that they won the competition".

The art competition entitled 'what does Community Safety mean to you?' was launched during the Crucial Crew workshops which saw almost 800 pupils from 26 primary schools take part during the summer term.

Crucial Crew - which has been running for 28 years and is organised by the multi-agency Uttlesford Community Safety Partnership - is for Year 6 children to help them deal with the transition of moving from primary to secondary school.

The workshops were designed to help the children understand the consequences of making the wrong choices whilst encouraging them towards the right choices and taking responsibility for their actions, by covering a range of topics such as road safety, fire safety, vaping awareness, anti-social behaviour, shoplifting and healthy relationships.
