The reason for starting this petition is to primarily campaign for a much safer route to school and play group for children and parents.  Currently parents do not feel safe when walking to school as a heavy volume of traffic passes through the village, often breaking the speed limit.  However these issues face people of all ages.  All residents of Trellech should be able to access the local amenities wthin the village and at present many people are forced to drive around the village to access facilities (Babington Centre/Busy Bodies play group/ Pub/Trellech Primary School entrances/Drs surgery and recreational park as well as the Chapel and Church).  At present the partial footpath is incredibly narrow in places and does not follow the road all the way through past several key amenities.   All members of the community should have safe and healthy routes to and from different venues.   It is crucial that safe measures are put in place to avoid tragic accidents and the loss of life and motivate more people to walk instead of driving their car, thus showing a commitment to a 'healthy living' across the board and reducing the communities carbon footprint.
