Lollipop patrols face the chop.



Pressed with finding things to cut, our Tory Council have come up with the appalling idea to slash £60,000 from school crossing patrols. The Croydon Guardian reports the figure £60k. Last month we were given the figure £42,000.

Parent Governer Jo Wittams is leading a campaign to STOP the lollipop patrol being STOPPED on Northcote road, around the corner from where I live. Her campaign has made the Evening Standard.

Well done Jo!

Maybe if the Council hadn't spent a £140 million on fancy new offices for themselves, they'd be some money left for lollypop ladies.
It just shows you what priorities our councillors have!

FAIR IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR
