A mother leading the parents’ fight to save The Charles Read Academy in Corby Glen from closure took a petition she has launched to a supermarket in Bourne on Wednesday.

Protest organiser Sharon Broughton-Eley, a parent with three special needs children at the school, got more 250 signatures during the three hours she spent at Tesco in South Road, Bourne.

She said: “There was a lot of support for our cause although some people didn’t know about it.”

The parents’ petitions are available to sign in Corby Glen at the primary school, the Fighting Cocks pub, the surgery, the Co-op and Pauline’s Store. They are also in the South Witham village store and being distributed around Colsterworth.
