LV=Streetwise - Volunteers needed

LV=Streetwise opened in 1998 and is a Safety Centre run as a charity and based in Elliott Road, Bournemouth. About 12,000 children a year visit LV=Streetwise from Dorset schools (including West Parley First School) and occasionally from further afield and they are taught about hazards they may meet in everyday life. It is a full scale representation of a village set in a large warehouse and contains a street with cars, a bus and pedestrian crossing, a park, alley, two-storey furnished house and garden, electric sub-station, railway line and train, farm, heathland and beach. Schools normally first send children of 6-7 years old, then they visit again when they are 9-10 years old. About 30-40 children attend each session and each Safety Guide is responsible for a group of about 6 children.

New Safety Guides are always welcome and the minimum commitment is one 2-hour tour per month but there is no maximum! Volunteer guides first shadow an experienced guide for a number of sessions until they feel confident to conduct a tour on their own. All find it an extremely enriching experience. Why not visit the LV=Streetwise website at www.streetwise.org.uk to see what the centre offers or visit the centre to see what is offered to the children? Further information may also be obtained by telephoning LV=Streetwise on 01202 591330.

Whats On

Residents oppose scrapyard plans

Residents in a quiet road in West Parley are urging ramblers, horse riders and cyclists to join them in opposing a planning application for a scrapyard in their road.

The planning application was submitted to East Dorset District Council in the Summer and attracted numerous objections from residents and horse riders but was withdrawn. Full details of the application are on the dorsetforyou web site – Dorset County Council Ref 3/17/2480. The County Council have asked that previous objectors resubmit their objections to them under the new application number. . more
