A new patrol point is to be introduced on Atherton Way, helping those on foot heading for the new Vale Academy and the Brigg Primary School, while North Lincolnshire Council is also looking to appoint a patrol man or woman on Wrawby Road to serve Sir John Nelthorpe Lower School.
A spokesman for the local authority told Brigg Blog today: "We are recruiting for both those sites in Brigg. The Wrawby Road site is an existing site so we would be looking to recruit to that site first, but we welcome applicants interested in both sites. As the Atherton Way crossing is new, it is not yet 'live' so to speak, but we hope to have it set up soon."
" You can find details about the rate of pay and apply online through our website here
"Those interested are also welcome to call our team for a chat, to find out more, or to apply over the phone on 01724 297463.
"No particular closing date applies - we are always looking to hear from people interested in becoming patrols.
"The previous Wrawby Road School Crossing Patrol was Mrs Ann Etty and she had been on the same site, rain or shine, for the past 26 years."
North Lincolnshire Council's leader, Coun Rob Waltham, made reference to the need for school crossing patrols during the council meetings held in Brigg's Angel Suite on Monday evening. He mentioned the retirement of the Wrawby Road patrol lady.
