Every year Shelburne Police hosts a bicycle safety campaign design to help promote the use of helmets and safe cycling.
During the month of June Shelburne Police watches for children riding their bikes in a safe manner and wearing helmets. The officers then enter these safe young cyclists into a draw for a new bike.
Every year on July 1st during the Shelburne Canada Festivities, one boy’s name and one girl’s name is drawn to win a new bike.
The bikes are sponsored every year by Dufferin Mutual Insurance Company.
“A special thanks to a great community partner – Dufferin Mutual Insurance Company”, states Chief Moore.
Shelburne Police reminds all cyclists to wear helmets, and ride safely!
This year’s winner of the girl’s bike is Shaye Sherift pictured above with Leanne Doig of Dufferin Mutual Insurance, and Constables Fudge and Fines of Shelburne Police.
This year’s winner of the boy’s bike is Hughie Brennan pictured with his father High Brennan, along with Jessica Plowright of Dufferin Mutual Insurance, and Constables Fudge and Fines of Shelburne Police.
