This November, much-missed RoadPeace trustee and long-standing campaigner, Pauline Fielding MBE, was remembered at a series of events:
Merseyside Police Special Recognition Award
Earlier this month, Merseyside Police awarded its Special Recognition Award posthumously to Pauline (1945 – 2023). Pauline was an active member of the Merseyside Police Independent Advisory Group and an avid road safety campaigner after her 18-year-old son, Andrew, was killed in a road traffic collision in 1994.
Following Andrew’s death, Pauline successfully fought hard for changes at the junction where the collision occurred, to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 40mph. Pauline was a long-standing member of RoadPeace, the coordinator of the RoadPeace NorthWest local group and a Trustee of our charity.
On presenting the award, Merseyside Police said: “Rest in Peace Pauline and thank you for your tremendous work.”
This recognition not only pays tribute to her legacy but also serves as a reminder of the positive impact one individual can have on a community.
Premier League Inspires and RoadPeace Workshop
From a family of football fans, over the years, Pauline also worked alongside the Liverpool Football Club Foundation to educate young people about road danger.
Last week, a Premier League Inspires and RoadPeace workshop took place to educate more than 70 young people about becoming safer road users.
Premier League Inspires aims to inspire young people aged 11-18 who are at risk of not reaching their full potential. Pauline’s commitment to empowering youth aligned seamlessly with the goals of Premier League Inspires.
The event was attended by fellow campaigner and RoadPeace member, Sharron Huddleston, also a bereaved Mum, as well as members of Pauline’s family.
During the workshop, the LFC Foundation paid a heartfelt tribute to Pauline by presenting her sister with a Liverpool FC shirt and a signed Manchester City Phil Foden shirt.
World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
On Sunday November 19, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims service took place in Liverpool, marking the first occurrence since Pauline’s passing. She had previously organised this annual service, making her absence deeply felt.
As the community gathered to remember and honour victims of road traffic incidents, Pauline’s spirit lived on in the hearts of those she touched.
