School crossing patrol

DRIVERS are being warned that Maple Grove Infants’ School in March will be without a crossing patrol from the end of the month.

The patrol who provides cover for the school is leaving and Cambs County Council has made a request for drivers to take extra care to help keep families going to and from the school safe.

The departure of the current lollipop man leaves a vacancy for the role as the County Council has determined that the site still meets the criteria for a patrol.

But due to detailed checks and the Christmas break, it is anticipated any replacement would not start work until at least mid-January.

If anybody would like further information or wishes to apply for this vacancy, contact Andy Swallowe, SCP Service Manager, on 01223-699959 or email
