Keep our lollipop man on Childwall Lane, Liverpool.

This is a really dangerous crossing with cars coming out of the tunnel too fast and on a blind corner. It is a major crossing point for a lot of people.

Why is this important?

Safety for our children.
Alan has become well known and liked by both children and adults alike, he always has a friendly smile and a wave to give weather you are walking or driving to school.
He provides a much needed service at a crucial crossing point, with a much needed smile come morning and night.

It is my personal experience that I am unable to cross my 2 young children across the road as there is no dropped curb, I have to use a mobility scooter to take my children to school and have to go onto the road to be able to get on and off the path, Alan safely crosses my children for me and the proceeds to aid in my crossing too.

How it will be delivered

To the council

Childwall Lane, Liverpool L14

Reasons for signing

  • There has been a Lollipop lady/man there as far as I can remember back to the early 70's. It is much needed especially with 4 directions of traffic converging on that particular crossing, one being cars flying blindly through that tunnel. Don't be daft Knowsley Council.
  • Alan is such a great person. He always waves to us in the car every morning, and it really brightens up my day seeing a friendly face every day. Not to mention the countless health and safety risks that would be introduced by sacking our lollipop man
  • If this goes through it will only take one child to be injured to realise the folly of the decision
