Unfortunately, I am required to make a plea again to all users of the car park to exercise caution and care when deciding where to park.
I have been aware that on an increasing number of occasions, users are parking either ON or BEYOND the zebra crossing near to the MUGA steps which has resulted in a couple of near misses with children having to avoid cars either driving in or reversing out of this area.
Whilst I appreciate that parking spaces are limited, I must stress that this area of the car park is absolutely NOT for parking within. The zebra crossing has been installed to ensure that children can cross safely without any fear of cars being around them and this must be the case at all times.
This area has now been coned off and we will be discussing this matter with both police and the council’s Safer Routes Team, as well as at the next Parent Council Meeting.
As you will appreciate, the safety of the children is the absolute priority at all times and this cannot be compromised.
Thanks in advance for your support in this matter.
