Get your car seat checked

Parents and carers are invited to have their child car seats checked out free of charge this weekend as part of a nationwide safety campaign.

The safety checks will be available this Saturday, August 16, between 11am and 4pm in the car park at Asda on Lintonville Terrace.

Coun Ian Swithenbank said: “I would urge anyone who carries a baby or child in a car seat to take up the chance of a free safety check and to get advice from the experts.”

Advisers from Northumberland County Council and the Good Egg Safety Campaign will be on hand to talk to parents.
