Signs are looking good for Mason, 13


A


local teenager is celebrating this month after winning a road safety competition and


scooping tickets to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Leavesden. Police Community Support Officer John Diaz


invited local schools and children in Abbots Langley and surrounding areas to create a poster promoting road safety awareness. Around 100 children entered the competition


and the winner, Mason Sanders, was selected by Three Rivers District Councillor Chris Whately- Smith. Mason, who lives in Bedmond, designed a


poster featuring a face created out of road signs. He also created a motto, ―You know your face inside out so learn the signs when out and about‖.


Cllr Whately-Smith told My Abbots News


that he Mason’s poster.


selected Mason‘s poster because of the simplicity of the design. He explained: ―I chose Mason‘s poster because it is a clear, clever yet simple design using a face as a motif.‖ Mason, 13, said: ―I love cars and have a road sign book at home so I went through the signs


and came up with the idea of using them to make a face. I didn‘t think I would win because there wasn‘t a lot of colour in my design. I was worried

others would be more colourful.‖ Mason visited Abbots Langley Police Station


where he was presented with a family ticket for the studios and a £5 Olympic coin by Cllr Whately Smith and PCSO Diaz. PCSO Diaz said: ―This is the first time we have


done a competition like this. ―All the kids really enjoyed it and we are


hoping to put copies of Mason‘s entry up around the village. Our next project to teach children about road safety is a walk into school scheme.‖ by Emily Ansell
