Safety Central now has even more in store for visitors
Lifeskills education at our award-winning learning centre has become even more interactive thanks to a generous early Christmas present from a major national retailer.
Working with its construction partners, the Co-op has installed a realistic new mock convenience store at Safety Central in Lymm.
It will be used to teach thousands of schoolchildren, young people and community groups about a range of important safety and lifestyle issues, including healthy eating, food labelling, age restrictions on certain products and the impact and implications of shoplifting and anti-social behaviour.
The investment of over £30,000 has created a lifelike set featuring shop fittings, signage, a counter and a working till that you would expect to find in a real Co-op store.
