Save Tamesides School Crossing Patrols

Tameside Council have a surplus of approx £26m but have closed Sure Start centres, Libraries & now School Crossing Patrols are going to disappear.


On March 31st there will be 30 less School Crossing Patrols in Tameside. I live in Hyde & Dowson Road “can” be dangerous to cross on your own but when you add in your children it can be a death trap. What do the council do? Remove a school crossing patrol from this busy main road.


I spoke to a School Crossing Patrol who has done the job for nearly 35 years she has to reapply for her job again, after already being asked to be made redundant. This lady loves her job & the council just don't care, this is a disgrace!!


On the basis of the cost of a School Crossing Patrols & assuming they are paid the minimum wage of £6.31, working two hours a day over the school term of approx 40 wks equates to a salary of £2,524. I’m sure the Labour Controlled Tameside Council can fund this vital service.


Please stop this local authority from putting children’s lives at risk.
