Pupils rewarded for safety signs.

CREATIVE school children from Ynysddu, Deri and Bedwas primary schools got gift vouchers to recognise their efforts to get drivers to slow down.

Their designs for '20 is plenty' posters urging motorists to cut their speed drastically around schools were mocked up and they were presented with their prizes by Caerphilly council mayor, councillor James Fussell.

The winning designs will be used on road signs outside the schools to remind drivers to slow down.

Cabinet member councillor Rob Gough said: "It was pleasing to see so many excellent designs, many of which incorporated traditionally 'slow' animals such as snails and caterpillars to help encourage motorists to slow down outside the schools."
