Luxe, Hastings, when they were presented
with Safety First certificates by the Chie
Constable of Hastings, Lt.-Col. A. G. Cargill.
The girl, 11-year-old Diana Beale, of
Newgate-road, St. Leonards, who attends St.
Leonards Secondary Modern School for Girls,
was seen by a police officer in Bohemia road
in charge of four young children. Diana took
them to a pedestrian crossing to instruct
them how to use the crossing, make them
hold hands, look left and right and wait for
the roadto become clear before crossing.
In the opinion of the police officer she
showed initiative and leader- ship.

The van driver. Mr. Dennis Roy Lown, of
Downlands-avenue. Bexhill, was. driving his
van in Trinitystreet when athree-yearold child
dashed across the road in front of the van.
With perfect control Mr. Lown Swung his

brakes. His prompt and efficient handling
averted what would hev been a serious
accident
