Lydgate School Crossing Warden

Sheffield City Council have cut the school crossing warden for Lydgate Infant School.

The crossing warden, which makes sure school children traveling to and from Lydgate Infant School are safe, was provided by Sheffield City Council. But it has now been cut as the council believes it is not necessary.

The safety of a child when they are travelling to school should be of paramount concern for the council. It is clear that the layout of the road necessitates a safely managed crossing. We are pushing the council to reconsider their decision and recruit a new school crossing warden as soon as possible to avoid any chance of future accidents or injury to children.

Local Lib Dem Councillor Mohammed Mahroof has secured a site visit from the cabinet member. But your voice could help force the council to reverse their decision. Support our campaign below.
