Blaenau Gwent pupils meet guide dog in special talk



First published in News

GUIDE Dogs Cymru visited St Illtyd’s and Ebbw Fawr primary schools to talk about hazardous parking.

Guide Dogs Cymru’s Engagement Officer Nathan Foy, along with his guide dog, Mason, delivered two school assemblies explaining to the children that cars, vans and other vehicles parked on pavements are making towns and local areas hazardous for blind and partially-sighted people.

At the end of the assembly, the children asked Mr Foy questions and pupils had the chance to meet guide dog Mason and have their photographs taken with him. Nathan also met the Junior Road Safety Officers at the schools. He praised the important work that they do and pledged Guide Dogs Cymru’s support.

The Junior Road Safety Officers at St Illtyd’s have worked extremely hard to try to change drivers’ behaviour outside their school.
