Warden Hill Primary school - traffic prohibition volunteers needed

Community Volunteers Needed Urgently

During the current Covid 19 crisis, Leckhampton With Warden Hill Parish Council have been trying to help face the new challenges that this pandemic has thrown up in our community.

One of our local schools Warden Hill Primary school is located at the end of a small close with narrow pavements, making social distancing for parents and children difficult on the way to and from school. We have been working with the school and elected representatives to help operate a voluntary traffic prohibition to prevent parents driving up Durham Close and thus providing an extra safe space for parents and children to walk on the road.

This has proved to be extremely effective in safeguarding our local children but is time consuming. We have achieved this by local parish councillors working on a rota basis, to act as traffic marshals at the entrance to the close, at pick up and drop off times, to ensure that parents do not try to access the road.

Could you help us keep our children safe by joining our rota of community volunteers acting as traffic marshals? Currently we need to provide coverage Monday- Thursday between 8.15am -9.30am and 2.15pm -3.30pm. Any session that you can cover, either on an ad hoc or regular basis will help us continue to provide this support.

If you are able to help, please contact Borough and Parish Councillor Tony Oliver on 01242 580521 or at anton1@btinternet.com
