In April the School Crossing Patrol Service celebrated it’s 60th birthday.
To commemorate and to highlight the importance of crossing with a School crossing patrol,  Road Safety Wales invited the primary school children of Wales to take part in a poster competition.
A prize was awarded to 1 winner in each Regional Transport Consortia donated by Bristol Oilskins Ltd.
The winner in the North Wales region was Ffion Haf Jones a pupil at Ysgol Bethel, Caernarfon, Gwynedd.
Local Member Councillor Sion Jones said “I was very pleased that Ysgol Bethel pupils had taken part in the competition. One of my main priorities is ensuring safety on the streets of Bethel and role of the lollypop person is important as it contributes to the safety of the pupils on their journey to and from school.
