Community, What's On
The Newry and Mourne Policing and Community Safety Partnership, in conjunction with Peace III, Challenge of Change, the PSNI and the NIFRS are hosting a ‘Stay Safe on the Roads’ Event on the Mourne Esplanade, Kilkeel on 26th September 2014 from 5:00 – 8:30 pm. This event is managed by the PEACE III Southern Partnership, PCSP and supported by the European Union’s PEACE III Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body. Responding to community consolations this unique event gives everyone the opportunity to “ask the experts”. Focusing on safety and regulation issues for road users it will include information on buying and licensing your car, tax, insuring and MOT-ing a car, to road safety for cyclists and more. Road safety and road awareness information will be available in Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Hungarian, Slovak and Russian. Patricia Hamilton, Policing Officer with PCSP stated, “Whether you are new to the roads in Northern Ireland, or not, this event promotes the message of road safety awareness for drivers and cyclists of all ages along with family fun including Laser tag, a Bouncy Castle, as well as free music and free food. “I would encourage everyone to bring along their bicycle and take advantage of the PSNI’s new bike marking scheme, or try your wheels at the cycling proficiency exercises.” Cllr. William Burns, Peace III Southern Partnership, commented, “Road safety is an important issue for our District and I am delighted to welcome to Kilkeel, the various partners who have come together to put on this event. “All those attending will have the opportunity to engage with local neighbourhood teams and see the PSNI cell car and motorcycles, as well as the specially modified Connect III car. The will also have the opportunity to witness the NIFRS demonstrating a simulated car accident and extraction which will take place at 7pm.”
