Please can I ask for consideration, patience and tolerance to be shown to all and by all using Tanners Lane at drop-off and pick-up times. We are working on a solution to the inadequate parking facilities for parents and I will let you know of the outcome to our meeting on Tuesday 3rd. Many thanks, Mr. R.
This meeting; attended by myself, Chris Smith (our Chair of Governors), three members of the Parish Council and representatives from Wiltshire Police; was both informative and highly productive. We looked at both long and short-term solutions to the issue and have arrived at a strategy which, it is hoped, will alleviate the problem for both residents and parents. The wheels of Local Government run slow, however, and this stratgey will take time. It was agreed that any solution needs to provide for safe space for children to be taken into school while at the same time catering for the residents right of free and safe pedestrian access to Tanners Lane.
Could I please take this opportunity to ask for patience and kindness to be shown by all who need to use this space towards others who wish to do the same. If you feel that you have to use the pavement to park as there is nowhere else, please could you not obstruct all of it but leave enough space for a push-chair to pass? And if 'pavement parking' annoys you please do not make a mountain out of a molehill - it is not (as my daughter might say) a 'biggie.'
