Free Baby on Board Stickers
for Families in the North West
AS families across the UK set off on the long summer holiday drive, carrentals.co.uk
is offering free Baby on Board signs to help with safety and are offering families
across the North West the chance to receive a free Baby on Board
sign for their car as part of the company's Family Active campaign.
With the UK home to some of the busiest and most congested roads in
Europe, a growing number of parents are choosing additional safety
alerts to help protect their children. The carrentals.co.uk
initiative will now provide Baby on Board signs free to families
across the UK throughout the summer holiday period.
Andrew Stevens, managing director of carrentals.co.uk, said:-
"Driving a car is something most of us do on a daily basis but no
matter how many years experience we have it's all too easy to forget
basic road rules. By offering these stickers to families across the
country we hope to remind road users to drive with extra care and
attention, particularly over the summer months when many families
will be taking long journeys."
Designed to stick on the back windscreen of the car, the signs can
easily be removed for use in different vehicles. The
Family Active campaign is designed to make it
easier for families to get out and about over the summer holidays,
with the website offering tips and ideas for entertainment and
travel over the coming months. Also available are special offers at
attractions around the country, free map downloads of 56 walks
across the UK and free audio book downloads with Audible.co.uk.

VIOLENCE...IT'S NOT OK!
YOUNG OFFENDERS are saying
"NO!" to violence in a series of
radio adverts. The It's Not OK project looks at all types of
violence but the radio adverts focus on alcohol-related aggression
in particular. This part of the project, delivered by the Ariel
Trust, follows work in schools around different types of aggression
including racial and media violence.
Creative Education Manager Gaynor Wright from the Liverpool Culture
Company is overseeing the project. She said:- "Being able to talk
about violence in the safe environment of the radio studio has
really made a life-changing difference in the young people taking
Negotiations are taking place with radio stations to get the moving
broadcast to as wide an audience as possible. Sarah is a young
offender involved in the project. She started off being frightened
of talking into a microphone and sat in the corner of the room. Now
her self confidence has risen massively and she has recorded her
story in advert format. She said:- "I hope that telling my story
helps other people. A few months ago if I was going out, I would be
binge drinking, but now I control how much I drink and the space of
time I do it in. I feel like I've achieved something, that no one
else I know has done. I would like to do a radio course to carry on
Liverpool City Council executive member for culture, Cllr Warren
Bradley said:- "Work like this is engaging young people who are all
tarred with the same brush and hopefully making them think about not
only the consequences of their sometimes violent actions, but also
how being victims of violence left them to commit crime in the first
