School crossing patrol army needs YOU!
Nottinghamshire County Council’s army of school crossing patrols helps thousands of the county’s 60,000 primary schoolchildren get safely to and from school every day.
Perhaps more commonly known as the lollipop man or lady, they provide a safer crossing place for parents, children and other people to cross the road on school journeys.
They are primarily provided for children aged five to 11 and are a familiar and friendly face at sites which meet the necessary criteria.
The County Council is currently recruiting for patrols at some of its 142 sites around the county – and one of its longest serving patrols is urging anyone interested to have a go.
