Circle time on a Murrayville sidewalk

Langley RCMP officer pulled over, got out of his police car to say hi and sat on the road to chat with them.

Editor: I run a licenced daycare in Murrayville — Gigglez & Grinz Daycare. My kiddos and I were walking home from our morning school drop-off and we saw a police car coming.

The kids get so excited when they see our local heroes, and even more excited when they can get a wave out of them.

Well, this officer went above and beyond. Not only did he wave to the children, he pulled over, got out of his police car to say hi and sat on the road to chat with them. He made them all feel so special.

The world needs more kind-hearted people like this. People who go out of their way to make our children feel special and safe are so valuable.

This will be a forever memory for these kids, and something I’m sure they will brag about forever. It was the day they had circle time on the sidewalk with a hero.
