LCC Responce to Park Lane Junction Issues

LCC Responce to Park Lane Junction Issues

Regarding School Crossing Patrols (SCPs). The SCP that was at this site retired in July 2014 and prior to this happening the decision was made to withdraw SCP sites located on light controlled crossings when they become vacant. Leicestershire County Council's SCP Service follows guidelines produced by Road Safety GB for managing the service and also criteria for assessing SCP sites. The national guidelines outline that it is not necessary for SCPs to work on light controlled crossings. SCPs and light controlled crossings fulfil the same purpose, therefore, having both in place at the same site is a duplication of resources and may in some cases become confusing for drivers. More »

As you will be aware the SCP Service is a non-statutory function and the responsibility for ensuring the safety of children travelling to and from school is, and must remain, a parental one.

In addition the SCP located on Park Lane (a standard crossing with no additional crossing facilities) has recently resigned from this role. This site has been assessed and it does not currently meet the national criteria we follow for recruiting a patrol. However, this location will be reviewed again in the spring and should the results be different this will be reconsidered. » Less

Lamp Post poppies

A massive thanks to all those who donated to this project this year, it was a great success with £476 being collected for the British Legion – hopefully next year, even more can be raised and an even wider spread of poppies will be achieved.

Royal British Legion Remembrance Day

Royal British Legion Remembrance Day

This year saw a well-attended Remembrance Day parade on Sunday 12 November enjoying the bright, but chilly winter sun.

The British Legion and Parish Council had worked with The Leicestershire & Rutland 4 x 4 Emergency Responders and Marks and Spencers volunteers to cover the road closures and parade. This was a new responsibility due to the financial cuts of the Police meant that their help could not be guaranteed. All went exceptional well and all partners have been invited to a debrief and have been booked for 2018. More »

The British Legion and Parish Council thanks these volunteers for giving their time to ensure the Castle Donington Remembrance Parade was a success. » Less
