• All Devon school crossing patrols now in front line for cuts

    11th November 2015 | News | Claire
  • In my ward, this means that school crossing patrols at Ottery St Mary and Feniton are at risk.

    Both services in my view are vital. Feniton’s Station Road is very busy at school pick up and drop off times. And the service is even more vital in Ottery’s case, as the patrol operates on the Tip Hill crossroads, between Winters Lane and Longdogs Lane. At rush hour, this is a fast and dangerous road with limited visibility. 

    The safety of children must be our highest priority and I will vociferously oppose any plans to cut either service.
