Eight West Oxfordshire primary school pupils were presented with new bikes after winning a road safety competition.
The students were selected from 23 primary schools across the district who designed posters highlighting road safety for cyclists.
The competition was organised by Councillor Norman MacRae, chairman of West Oxfordshire District Council with sponsorship from the Rotary and Lions Clubs as well as Witney Round Table.
Cllr MacRae said: “The standard of entries was really high and it is encouraging to see so many young people becoming aware of the importance of road safety. It was also a fantastic surprise for the winners and I loved seeing how delighted they were to be given a new bike.”
The participating schools run classes on road safety and cycling proficiency, carried out in association with the police.
One further bike will be presented after the Easter break.
The winning list includes Andrew Grant of St Mary’s, Witney; Sophie Bardon of St Christopher’s in Langford; Freddie Stevens of Kingham Primary School; Shayla Wallcraft of St Joseph’s, Carterton; Samuel Nichols of Finstock Primary School, and Martha New of Woodstock Primary School.
