Lord Mayor Abid launches safety campaign

Mayor Abid Hussain with children

BRADFORD: A pioneering children’s safety initiative has been formally launched in the city. The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Keighley councillor Abid Hussain, helped ‘unveil’ the scheme at Braithwaite and Guard House Gala on Saturday. Three schools are taking part in the Children’s Year of Safety, which has the support of a wide range of organisations and agencies. It is hoped that if the scheme is a success, it will be rolled out to other parts of Keighley and the wider Bradford district. Cllr Hussain said at the gala, at Merlin Top Primary Academy, that the venture aimed to involve all parts of the community and he was proud to support it.
