East Wittering pupils now safer to walk to school

PUPILS, parents and staff at East Wittering Community School are celebrating the installation of a new puffin crossing in Stocks Lane.

Cllr Pieter Montyn, the West Sussex County Council cabinet member for highways and transport, is due to officially ‘launch’ the new crossing today.

The £53,000 scheme has been eagerly awaited by local people.

East Wittering and Bracklesham Parish Council and parents from the school, Ginny Argyle, Kate Chaplin, Louise Chater and Chloe Munday, were active in raising the need for the crossing.

Cllr Montyn said: “East Wittering and Bracklesham Parish Council, the local school and residents have been keen to see the crossing be introduced for some time.”
