School pupils in Ripley have picked up road and scooter safety advice following a visit by a local Safer Neighbourhood officer. PCSO Sarah Dufton visited Ripley Junior School with Rob Bounds from Derbyshire County Council’s Sustainable Travel Team. The pair met around 180 pupils at the school and undertook Scooter Smart training, where children practiced their skills of control, stopping and looking out for pedestrians and vehicles on their journey to school.
