Safe Drive presentation comes to Devizes and Marlborough
Hundreds more Year 11 students will experience a hard-hitting road safety presentation next week.
Safe Drive Stay Alive uses powerful personal testimony and dramatic video footage to make the audience aware
of the tragedy and suffering caused by road traffic collisions.
The Corn Exchange in Devizes will host students from Devizes School, Melksham Oak School, John Bentley School
in Calne, Pewsey Vale School, Matravers School in Westbury, and Stonar School in Atworth on Tuesday 22
November. Marlborough College will then be the venue on Thursday 24 November, with students from the college,
St John’s School in Marlborough and St Mary’s School in Calne attending.
The event in Devizes will also be the regional launch of National Road Safety Week by the charity BRAKE.
Safe Drive Stay Alive is led and primarily co-ordinated by Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, and is well
supported by other major partners, including Wiltshire Police, SWIFT Medics, Wiltshire Council, Swindon Borough
Council, NHS Wiltshire and Honda UK.
Since its launch in 2006, the roadshow has been seen by thousands of students – and the organising team is
hoping that it will soon be essential viewing for every school in Wiltshire and Swindon.
