Specsavers in Ashby de la Zouch has donated a number of high-visibility vests to local children's groups.

Before the third lockdown began in January, the Market Street store provided local Brownies and Scouts groups with the vests, as well as Ashby Willesley Primary School, so the youngsters can stay safe and seen while summer slowly approaches.

"While the vests can't be used at the moment, we hope once they can, they will help put the minds of teachers and parents at rest," said Specsavers Ashby store director, Kuljinder Bains.

"While we're starting to put winter behind us, even as the days draw out, it will still be important for children to be spotted when out and about, and I'm sure the vests will be put to good use."

Under current government guidance, Specsavers stores remain open for eye and hearing needs during lockdown.

In line with NHS recommendations, Specsavers colleagues use personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout the stores, wear face masks and other PPE during tests, and all testing equipment and frames are thoroughly sanitised before and after each use.

All appointments need to be made in advance and there are also be restrictions on the number of customers allowed in store at any one time, strict social distancing rules and, where possible, card instead of cash payments.

For more information or to book an eye test, call the store on 01530 410 790 or go to Specsavers Ashby
