Who's that in the bright green hat?

So just how do you go about getting to know people in your area? Well, in David's case, by joining the team of what they call 'school guards', volunteers who are out and about when the children are going to and from school just to check there are no problems. All the children here walk to school - no parents walking with them or taking them by car. Last week the school guards were introduced to the children at morning assembly so now every child in the school knows who David is. And the rather fetching gear was given out - yellow armband and luminous green hat! Today was day one of being out and about and it was great to hear the children all saying 'Good morning' as they passed by. It will be a good way of getting to know them and just become more visible in the community.
