Carys Ofalus encouraging Gwynedd youngsters to keep safe on the roads

Carys Ofalus is Gwynedd Council’s much loved road safety character and is central to the  campaign to encourage Gwynedd youngsters to stay safe on the county’s roads. Gwynedd Council’s Road Safety Unit have updated and modernised the extremely popular book which is a vital resource within  Carys Ofalus’ road safety campaign.
 
The book was launched in its new form on the Gwynedd Council stall at the Meirionnydd Urdd National Eisteddfod and a host of youngsters came to listen to a reading of Carys’ story.
 
Councillor Gareth Roberts, Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member responsible for road safety said:
“The Carys Ofalus campaign has been very popular with Gwynedd youngsters over the past few years. Indeed, the books, activities and catchy songs have successfully established Carys as one of the county’s primary school children’s favourite character whilst also educating them about the importance of road safety in a fun way.
 
“I’m sure that re-launching this book will ensure that Carys Ofalus will continue to play an important part in Gwynedd school children’s educations for years to come.”
