The headteacher of a Deeping St James school and a county councillor are asking villagers to consider becoming a lollipop person.

A school crossing patrol vacancy at Linchfield Community Primary School is still open despite a successful campaign, including an online petition, to help children cross Crowson Way where the school is based.

In a school newsletter earlier this month, headteacher Selina Pacey said: “Unfortunately, Lincolnshire County Council has not been successful in appointing a school crossing patrol person which is a shame because this service is offered to keep our children safe.”

Deepings East county councillor Barry Dobson said: “We are looking for a willing person to carry out 
this very respected and worthwhile job that involves just an hour, per weekday, during term time to safeguard children.”
