We are fortunate that the Talbot Village Trust permit the use of their car park. A number of schools locally do not have parking provision for parents.


In recent weeks we have received a number of complaints regarding inconsiderate parking. Not only does this cause inconvenience, it does pose a potential risk to safety.


This morning we put some 'no waiting' cones down the lane in order to highlight the double yellow lines. You can see the success of this from the picture below. Whilst we appreciate that parking can be difficult, we do rely on people parking reasonably, so that traffic can circulate as freely as possible. 


With the weather not being great, I did go to help the flow of traffic - not helped by those parked inconsiderately.

Thank you to those of you who were pleasant to me and supportive of the necessary 'stop-starting' to free up the flow of traffic.
