Woolton Hill Traffic Safety Group Exhibition
15 Feb 2003
Led by Anna Perrins and Keren Anderson, parents of children at Woolton Hill Infant and Junior Schools together with Woolton Hill residents put on an exhibition at Woolton Hill Church Hall called "Planning for Real."

At the centre of the exhibition was a model of the village, on which visitors could put flags to highlight danger points.There was also a display of posters from schoolchildren which had road safety as their theme.

"There are two schools quite close to each other, with many children coming from out of catchment.Inevitably, many come by car and this creates the usual difficulties of parking and congestion, with the associated dangers. Then there are other problems, such as speeding, which occur throughout the day."

"At the moment, there is no pavement between the two schools. so parents with children at both schools tend to drop off twice."

"It was good to see Mike Ross, the District Councillor, and Max Maxwell, Chairman of the Parish Council, there to see how they could both help. The organisers are looking at a variety of solutions, going beyond car-sharing to organising groups of children who walk to school under the supervision of one adult, and seeing whether more off-street parking might be made available.This was an excellent example of community development, and it was good to see the exhibition so well supported."

After the exhibition, the organisers will distil all the comments and suggestion to see the best way forward.
