ST ASAPH pupils have formed a picket line to call for safe crossing.

Children, teachers and parents from St Asaph VP Infant School were joined by city mayor cllr Peter Scott to protest for a zebra crossing outside their school as part of Road Safety Week.

The pupils, who made their own placards, identified the need for a safe place to cross through pupil voice as part of their classroom topic on Journeys.

Acting headteacher Lynn Pepper said, “Our pupils talked about how they would like a safe place to cross the road as many of them leave at times where there is no crossing patrol.

“They came up with the idea of the protest and have had great fun creating their placards.

The school on Upper Denbigh Road currently has no car park, with parents forced to use the Cathedral car park - which is on the other side of the busy A525.

There is currently a 30 mph speed limit and a crossing patrol at the beginning and end of the school day.

Mrs Pepper added: “It has highlighted an important safety issue for the school and we are very proud of them.”
