Safer Roads Campaign

Wilkin Chapman solicitors is running a Safer Roads campaign to keep children and adults safe on the streets and roads of Lincolnshire and the Humber. See how you can get involved below.

Safer Roads campaign

To raise awareness of the dangers of Lincolnshire's rural roads and to aim to keep some of our vulnerable children safe on the streets and roads. Our personal injury department know only too well the perils of our rural roads in Lincolnshire.

We have launched our Safer Roads campaign to make children and adults alike, aware of the dangers that are always present on rural roads, and what you can do to stay safe and help create safer roads for all users.

Though the Lincolnshire countryside can be seen as a beautiful, tranquil place; its dangers often go unseen; especially during these shorter days and longer nights, often with reduced visibility in bad weather.


Road Safety Banner Competition 2018

Calling all primary schools across Lincolnshire and the Humber.

We are running a special competition where you could win your road safety design printed on a full size banner to put outside your school, and 60 high visibility vests.

'Don't be distracted - stay safe on our roads' is the theme for this year's competition, and we want you to get your students thinking about distractions whilst walking to school, the hazards they need to be aware of, and how this could endanger them.

The competition is run in partnership with Safer Roads Humber, the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, and Hull City Council.

Be as creative as you can! Think out of the box, go outside - look, listen, act it out, and submit. We cannot wait to see your entries. Use bold bright colours and lines.

Applications are now OPEN - DOWNLOAD your pack here. The deadline for all entries is Friday 29 June, 2018.

Entry packs can be downloaded below. This includes instructions and entry sheets you can print and copy for your pupils to use.

ONLY ONE ENTRY PER SCHOOL will be accepted. Maybe you could host a ‘road safety day’ and run a school competition that all the students can be involved in and the best one gets submitted to enter. The more children thinking about road safety the better.

Your school’s completed entry with full name and address is to be sent back to; Marketing dpt, Wilkin Chapman, 26 Chantry Lane, Grimsby, DN31 2LJ.

Please only send the ORIGINAL design to us to ensure the highest quality image for your banner - no scans or copies.

If you would like our marketing team to send a physical pack to you, please email;

A winning entry will be picked from a DN, LN and HU postcode, making 3 winners.

Entries will be judged by a panel made up of members from Safer Roads Humber, the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, and Hull City Council, with the winner being contacted personally by the marketing team at Wilkin Chapman.

The winning school’s design will be printed onto a 3m x 1m banner. The school will also receive 60 high visibility vests (20 x 4-6 years, 20 x 7-9 years, and 20 x 10-12 years).

The winning school and pupils who have submitted designs maybe expected to participate in local publicity to announce the winner of the competition. All entrants’ designs and school name (no names of pupils) will be shared on social media and via a showcase video on Wilkin Chapman’s Youtube channel.
