I am pleased to announce that St Mary & St Joseph RC Primary School and ERYC may have an interim school crossing patrol officer on the London Street crossing from Monday morning. A meeting was arranged yesterday morning to facilitate this. Unfortunately I am unaware of the outcome.
Following the sad news of a young girl being clipped by a car on Friday morning on the crossing, I would like to thank St Mary & St Joseph RC Primary School and ERYC for working with me to make the crossing safe in the short-term.
ERYC are considering applications for the permanent role of school crossing patrol officer for London Street.
In addition, I expect the school crossing to be in place in the next financial year.
Both Pocklington Town Council and ERYC Con Councillors have failed to adequately raise the need for a crossing for years. I do not understand why they failed to do this.
I would politely suggest that in future they represent the residents instead of conducting their unhelpful politics.
