A concerned parent is urging people to support her campaign for a new pedestrian crossing to be installed on an ‘absolutely lethal’ road to keep Avon Valley students safe.

Jane Hutchison, who has two children at Avon Valley School in Newbold Road, set up a letter writing meeting at the town hall so parents and members of the community could put their points across to Warwickshire County Council effectively. Jane said: “The meeting had quite a good turn out and was supported by local Labour party councillors, in particular Maggie O’Rourke, who is fully supporting us and helping us to steer the campaign forward.

“I think it’s everyone’s responsibility to try and keep children safe no matter how old they are, they still need looking after.”

County councillors Maggie O’Rourke, Mary Webb and Alan Webb have written to Peter Butlin, the councillor responsible for highways, and John White, house chairman of the safer routes to school group to request a meeting to discuss the concerns.
