    1. Petition by

      Save Our Schoolrun- Eaton

On 24th February, the gate between CNS playing fields and Eaton Golf Club will be closed. This gate is used by school children from CNS and Eaton Primary School when they walk to school. When it closes, they will be forced to go along busy roads (including the A11). It will also significantly increase the distance they have to walk. We believe this will put some people off walking to school. This is a shame from the point of view of our children's health, but we also worry that traffic/congestion could increase in the Greenways/ Sunningdale/ Branksome Rd areas.

We would like the parties responsible for the decision to close the gate to work together and find a way of keeping this pedestrian route open.

We are trying to demonstrate here how important this issue is to the Eaton community.

      It is vital that small children, all children be kept from danger on their journey to school.

      safest way for people living this side of school to get there as the alternative is newmarket road which is busy and dangerous

      I walked to and from CNS from Chestnut Hill in Eaton for 6 years between 1990-1996. The walk allowed me to build my independence and self-reliance, and the 20 mins of fresh air each way was an important part of my day. Closing the gate will mean that many young people will be denied the opportunity to grow their independence in this way, increase car-use, and put unnecessary pressure onto busy parents. Please keep the gate open!
