The school crossing patrol man, Derek Robbins narrowly avoided serious injury on Tuesday morning as he was hit in the leg by a passing car. He suffered bruising and muscle damage from the vehicle which failed to stop at the scene. The make, model and number of the car is not known, only that it was black. The Police would like to hear from anyone who can help throw light on this incident.
Mr Robbins was shocked and shaken up by the incident but was back on patrol yesterday and this morning.
The Parish Council has been lobbying hard for the school signs and speed limit to be moved since the school moved almost a year ago. It was proposed some time ago that the signs should be relocated on the A377 to give warning of the crossing.
