Caerphilly County Borough Council's Road Safety Team are pleased with the large number of people that visited the Road Safety marquee at this year's Big Cheese festival to learn some important road safety messages.
Over the course of the weekend, in excess of 1,200 visitors descended on the Road Safety marquee and had the opportunity to paint road safety pictures and make badges complete with road safety messages.
There was also a competition where children could win prizes by finding safety faults with a bike and the mobile phone competition was also heavily subscribed.
The winner of the mobile phone competition was Ryan Davies, who was presented with his prize, a fantastic mountain bike and helmet, by Cabinet Member for Transportation and Planning, Cllr Rob Gough and CCBC's Head of Engineering Services, Terry Shaw.
Cllr Rob Gough said, "I was delighted to see so many people visit the road safety marquee at this year's Big Cheese festival, which gave people the opportunity to learn some very important road safety messages.
Both adults and children alike had a thoroughly enjoyable time taking part in the educational activities that the team had organised."
Competition winner, Ryan Davies was thrilled with his prize and said, "I have never won anything before and have been wanting to buy a bike for ages so this was a lovely surprise!"
