Design A 'Park Smart' Poster To Win £500 For Your School & More!

Central Bedfordshire Council need help to spread the message about NOT parking outside schools. Your child's poster could win their school £500 & more!

Child leaving the car outside of school

We all know what a rush it can be getting the kids to school in the morning or picking them up when the bell rings...but most of you are responsible and think about your own and other children's safety.

Blocking entrances, parking on pavements or junctions, or pulling up on the zigzag marked areas might not seem that much of a big deal when you're in a hurry, but all of these can put children at risk and upset local residents.

We've teamed up with Central Bedfordshire Council to help spread the Park Smart message and get local children to help educate the grown ups about parking safely outside the school gates!

So, if your children are aged between 4 and 12 and live and go to school in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire or Hertfordshire, get them to design a Park Smart poster. Simply download the template below and get the little ones busy with the felt tips or crayons.

It could help make the local school run a lot safer AND win your child's school £500 to spend, plus a trip for the child's class to the Heart Studios. We'll also include a family ticket for Cineworld for the winner, so they can treat you all to the latest movie in 2017!

Once your little Picasso has completed their design you can either scan it and upload it via the form below or email it to or alternatively post it to:

Gemma Turvey Brown
Heart FM, 4th Floor CBXII East,
Midsummer Boulevard,
Milton Keynes, MK9 2EA

A judging panel from Central Bedfordshire Council and Heart will then choose their favourite, which will be used on printed posters and the winner will win the great prize for their school, class and family!

Make sure you get your poster design to us by 23:59 on Sunday 5th February though, as any entry received after this date and time will not be considered.
