Dear Community Police Office
Thank you for your letter, sent to all parents, regarding drop-off and
pick-up outside L's School. I understand the concerns of the resident
who has made the complaint. Parking at the school has been a
contributory factor in our choosing to move our severely disabled child
from the school to a different local primary, where disabled parking is actually provided for
parents. If your complainant is the same lady who has button-holed my
husband on more than one occasion as he was unloading our daughter on
the edge of the zig-zag lines outside the school, with her two
wheelchairs, her three bags and her walking frame, you can assure her
that her attitude had the desired effect and we have given
up our attempt to keep our child in the same school as her brother.
However, her six year old brother does still needs dropping at school
and we are reluctant to leave our daughter, who is at continual risk of
choking, in the car unattended whilst walking him up the hill from the
village hall car park. We are also reluctant to allow him to walk up
from the village hall car park by himself.
Him being only six and all.
If you have any suggestions to resolve our dilemma, I would be most keen to hear them.
Ranty Lady from Rantyville
