School Gate

We have high-lighted the importance of not parking in front of the school field gates to parents, residents and neighbours.  We have purchased a new sign for the gate and each day we place traffic cones across the area.

Many people are unaware of the importance of this action.  In the building that houses Shirley Infant & Shirley Junior school, there are around 700 pupils and 100 members of staff.  If we were unfortunate and experienced a fire, this gate is the only access to the building for emergency vehicles.  Parking here could risk the lives of 850 people in an emergency.
