Three Harlow primary schools looking for lollipop persons

Communities / Mon 29th Sep 2014 at 12:08pm

ARE you community-minded and have a couple of spare hours a day? If so, how about becoming a lollipop person?

Essex County Council is recruiting school crossing patrol officers across the county to fill vacancies at established crossings.

The three Harlow schools are Latton Green, Hare Street and Pear Tree Mead.

The recruitment drive comes after Essex County Council listened to schools and parents during a consultation into the future of school crossing patrols earlier this year, and decided not to press ahead with proposals to stop providing school crossing patrols at zebra crossings.

Essex County Councillor Rodney L. Bass, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, said: “School crossing patrol officers have a very special place in local communities and people who do the job find it very fulfilling.”

The purpose of the job is to help children, parents and other people across the road at designated times of day, during school term time only.

There are vacancies all over the county. The closing date for applications is Tuesday 7 October.

All of the crossings are longstanding and have met stringent safety criteria to qualify for a school crossing patrol.
