5 years ago, the County Council took away the Lollipop school crossing person
The Council had risk assessed and said there was no need.
I disagreed with Council in 2010, and put a petition in signed by hundreds of local people. But still the Council refused to budge.
Now in 2015, TLA School is nearly full every year, 3 more classes have increased the numbers at Monkwick Infants and Nursery School, and the junior school is expanding numbers year in year with another 140 children expected to join the school over the next 2 / 3 years
Add that to the new estates in Berechurch (Quarters / Solus estate) and new housing in Monkwick, it is clear to me that the County Council needs to review its decision and put in a School Crossing patrol
I have applied to County and hope that with parents backing, that the power of my argument will be heard.
CHILDS SAFETY MUST COME FIRST !
