Young farmers help drive rural road safety campaign home
A YOUNG farmers’ group in Banburyshire is backing a scheme to help prevent deaths on rural roads.
Wormleighton Young Farmers’ Club has joined hundreds of other groups across the country to promote the Drive it Home road safety campaign.
Members will speak to different groups throughout the year to help spread awareness of how drivers can keep safe on Warwickshire roads.
Milly Wastie, national young farmers’ chairman, said: “This campaign is something to get the young farmers involved in what to do on rural roads and to educate themselves in emergency situations, such as driving on ice or going through deep water.
“More and more people are realising that driving conditions especially at this time of the year are really dangerous. The members can really relate to something like this.”
As part of the scheme, each of the 600 clubs across the country designate a Drive it Home champion who will represent the club and attend special training courses throughout the year before coming back to promote road safety. For more information visit www.nfyfc.org.uk/driveithome
