I know I'm being unreasonable because this petition should be hidden away in the depths of the petition topic, where no fucker can see it blush

But before HQ moves it and gives me a swift kick up the arse, please can I ask you to sign This petition to halt the cutbacks?

Not everyone will agree of course, what with all the other awful cutbacks going on and that's fine.

But an area near me got rid of all their Lollipop patrollers last week and exactly 6 days later a child got hit on the school crossing sad

Anyway I'll stop waffling now. MNHQ I do apologise for blatantly putting this here for traffic, but when you move it, can you all sign it first? grin grin

Thanks.

One of the Lollipop Ladies I work with has just been charged with stealing the lollipops! shock

She denied theft but when the police searched her home

Well, all the signs were there....

<< BOOM! - TISH! >>

Signed, when you consider how much a lollipop person costs it is a tiny amount compared to the safety they offer our children

CatThiefKeith Mon 10-Apr-17 22:03:24

Done. We don't currently have one because the last lady retired with ill health after she got run over.angry

It's a dangerous bloody job, but I'm very grateful to all that do it, thanks Worra. flowers

Signed. The crossing outside my DCs school is deadly. Without our lollipop lady there would have been an awful accident for sure.

Signed! Our local lollipop lady does an amazing job.

The thing is, it's not even just about kids crossing alone because not that many walk to school alone nowadays anyway.

It's more about parents/carers too, trying to cross the road with schoolkids/pre-schoolers/buggies etc.

It's mad and all the speed bumps/zebra/pedestrian crossings can't really make up for having someone in charge, supervising the traffic as well as the pedestrians.

I'm all out of lollipop jokes now, you'll be pleased to hear grin

StiickEmUp Mon 10-Apr-17 22:34:13

Done. Love you worra

WorraLiberty Mon 10-Apr-17 22:42:37
