Children from a village primary school were treated to a visit from anti-bullying professionals backed by the Royal Family this week.

The Be Nice Bus, orchestrated by the Diana Award, visited Locking Primary School on Tuesday to deliver anti-bullying workshops.

The bus visited Locking thanks to the efforts of its 11-year-old student Nicholas Nikiforou, who won a Diana Award in 2017 for his work as an anti-bullying campaigner.

The award promotes kindness and was created in memory of Princess Diana, with Nicholas receiving his prize from her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

And the organisation has now embarked on a national tour with the Be Nice Bus, hoping 
to tackle school and cyber bullying.

Nicholas told the Mercury: “It was amazing to have the Be Nice Bus visit Locking.

“It was the best day I’ve ever had at school.”
