They Like it Slow in The Hamptons

Back in July the Hamptons Residents’ Association launched a competition for local children to come up with ‘Road Safety’ pictures that could be displayed to encourage motorists to slow down when driving around the estate.

13 entries and many careful deliberations later, winners were chosen and notified and there will be a reception at Maple Lodge tomorrow (Thursday 12th September) evening at 6:30 to present the winners with their prizes, exhibit all the entries and unveil the campaign that has resulted.

Mike Freter, Chair of the Hamptons Residents’ Association said that:
“All the paintings reveal both talent and a very mature understanding by the kids of the downside of speeding on residential roads.” 
The panel felt because of the wonderful effort made by all the children, they will all receive a small prize.
