Tufty Fluffytail was born in 1953. It was a hugely successful road safety campaign aimed at young children. The late Elsie Mills MBE created Tufty, who featured in stories for The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The squirrel and his friends introduced clear and simple safety messages to children.In 1961 The Tufty Club for under fives was launched. More than 30,000 books about road safety were issued to parents. At its peak there were nearly 25,000 branches throughout the country. By the early 1970s an estimated 2m children were members. The movement continued well into the 1980s.
The Charley public information films were made during the 1970's. They were shown at a time that children would be watching (Saturday morning's), these films were about a little boy and his cat called Charley who would keep a lookout for the little boy and warn him of potential danger's. these advert's were usually short and to the point. A total of 6 short films were made, here is a list of them.
Falling in the Water – Charley takes a big jump over a puddle and nearly drowns in the river when he leaps in by mistake. The scary music as Charley floats along underwater was a bit dramatic, but luckily he is caught on a fishermans line and reeled to safety.
In The Kitchen – About being careful near cookers because they’re might be hot things a-cooking that you could burn yourself on.
Matches – Charley says that if ever you see a box of matches lying around, tell mummy because they can hurt you.
Mummy Should Know – Some of Dominic’s friends call and ask if he wants to go on a picnic. Charley makes him tell his Mum, but she’s talking to the milkman and takes so long that they go without him. It’s alright though, because Mum takes them for a picnic instead because they were good.
Charley’s Tea Party – Oh dear! Charley ends up get scalded and covered in bandages when he plays to close to a hot teapot.
Strangers – My favourite! A strange man asks if Dominic would like to see some puppies (I don’t trust him). Charley warns him not to go and the man goes away, but on telling Mum they are rewarded. This one is funny purely for the way the strange man walks.

This photo is of Squire Green in Allerton Bradford taken in the early 1970's. These were Council Houses with the original metal windows and original wooden doors, most of these houses today have been bought and modernised.
