Our campaign to make the journey to school for children and parents alike safer with the installation of a flashing sign like the one shown on the left to slow down the speeding motorists on Preston Old Road has received a blow as the original support from the Councillors Cottam and Hardman has not been followed through.
We have now decided to put more pressure on and demonstrate the level of support there is for the installation of a sign. We have decided to lobby the Council's Executive board and submit letters of support for this much needed safety measure. Pre-printed letters will be sent home on Monday (5th July) for parents to simply add their address and print and sign their name. Each individual letter will be noted as a show of support so we need as many as possible letters to be returned to strengthen our case. Please do your best to support our campaign by taking a couple of minutes to fill in the details on the letter and in turn this will help our chances of improving the safety of our children on the way to school.
We will also be approaching the South West Neighbourhood Board in the hope they can provide some funding so the letters will also be presented to them. The more letters we get the more chance we have of obtaining the flashing sign which will benefit the pupils for generations to come.
