New crossing patrol for Sandford Primary School
PUBLISHED: 08:00 08 September 2017
Children from Sandford Primary School have been using their new crossing patrol, courtesy of the Thatchers Foundation.
The foundation will fund the vital post for the next year and trustee Anne Thatcher visited the school on the first day of term to see the crossing in action.
Paula Williams will now be outside the school from 8.30-9am and from 3.10-3.40pm every day to help families cross the road.
Lin Williams, executive headteacher of Sandford School, said: “We are delighted that the Thatchers Foundation has sponsored what is effectively a safer road crossing facility to support families walking to Sandford School.”
Mrs Thatcher said: “We are pleased to be able to support the school as we have been living and working here for four generations and many Thatchers cider staff and families live locally too, so this is one way of saying thank you and giving something back.”
