Crossing patrols wanted in Broughty

Ferry councillor Kevin Cordell has welcomed a campaign calling for an increase in the number of school crossing patrollers.

He praised a ‘Living Streets’ initiative which calls on the public to “save our lollipop people”.

He said: “Although this campaign is a national one I have had constituents contact me. I am very supportive of this campaign and anything that can be done to improve the safety of getting children to and from school is a help.”

Living Streets calls on people to contact their councils and urge them to protect the number of lollipop people they employ.

The councillor concluded: “School crossing patrollers are vital and I know the ones in my own ward do an excellent job. I am aware Dundee City Council is actively trying to recruit more patrollers.”
