Warning – there is a lot of references to wine in this blog, it is no reflection on the author's state of mind as a mother of two daughters on half term holidays. But more about us all speaking the same language. Wine was invented because raising children isn’t easy…. Why would you move your [...]

February 7th, 2019|Uncategorised|

“I need a car seat as an extra one for the grandparents.  I don’t want to pay a fortune as it’ll only be used occasionally. I know, I’ll have a look on eBay! Wow there’s 3,983 for sale - loads of choice! This one looks a good one - £10, collection only, and it’s just [...]

If you're like us and hate this time of year when adverts appear on the TV for that perfect dream holiday, where you sit by a pool with a good book, not a frizzed hair in sight and looking stunning, whilst your little ones jump safely and without concern into that beautifully peacefully pool. Then this [...]

Have you ever wondered how many children’s lives are saved in car crashes by the use of a correctly fitted car seat in the UK? In our line of work, we’d love to know the answer too - but would it surprise you to know that it isn’t actually recorded? Following a road traffic collision [...]

135cm or taller?

September 6th, 2018|Uncategorised|

I’ve been waiting to write this blog for a number of months now, but we haven’t been able to do it until now. However, timing is everything and as we are just getting back into the new school year it seems the right time to post it. My daughter has reached that magical 135cm tall, [...]

School News – Read All About It!

April 30th, 2018|Latest News, Uncategorised|

One of the most common comments we get at Police enforcement events goes something like this… “ You want to get down to my children’s school and have a look at the amount of children in wrong child seats, if they have any at all!” We also hear lots of parents say to their young [...]

This blog was written on Wednesday 10th February and is dedicated to the driver who sustained fatal injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues. I have been sat in on the M6 for 6 hours up to now. Less than a tenth of a mile in front of me are [...]

You may have heard the phrase “Car Crash TV” it basically means television programmes that show deliberately controversial, disturbing, or horrific material, that we don’t really want to see but we are compelled to keep watching.   It’s a bit of a sick phrase really when you think it through, in real life someone’s life has [...]

That's 1:3 children at risk right now on our roads. We have said so many times that there’s no point in having a perfectly fitted child seat and a poorly fitted child! Sadly though, parents and carers seem to still be getting it wrong. We have been collating information from all our car seat checks [...]

I had one ambition, throughout my school photo modelling career – and that was to get on [...]
