Save the Lollipop People, Dorset
I have organised a Dorset wide petition of all schools who are in danger of losing the School Crossing Patrols if Dorset County Council go ahead and make the cuts proposed in December. £200,000 and 65 Lollipop People’s jobs. DCC propopse that the Big Society pick up the slack and think that schools and local communities will come forward to provide either the funding for the service or volunteers.
I believe it is morally wrong to put the lives of young people in danger to save money. I know as a school governor we have no spare money. I can think of no place in the local community where there is spare money. As a leader of a Walking Bus scheme I know how hard it is to find volunteers and in Dorset as the proposal is to close most of the smaller libraries, anyone wanting to volunteer will be sitting in the warm keeping the libraries open and not standing out in all weathers, putting their lives in danger to see parents and children safely to school. This is a cut too far.
