Two Big Walk events have been held this Autumn to support the campaign for a zebra crossing on Woodways. They were organised by Emma Lister and Angela Matthews and supported by all three village schools.
Both events took the same format. A PCSO attended to see the children safely across Woodways at the proposed site of the crossing between the Infant and Junior schools. Emma Lister made a large zebra banner which she and a friend held out in front of the cars as the children crossed the road and children wore special outdoor clothes in support of the campaign and received stickers.
The first Big Walk took place during Walk to School Month on October 8th. PCSO Sue Jones was on hand to see the children across the road and children wore zebra hats and masks. A group of children waved posters and masks in support.
The second Big Walk was held during Road Safety Week on November 19th. PCSO Antony Hurd was on duty and this time children were asked to wear bright or hi-viz items on the 'Be Bright Be Seen' theme.
Both walks generated a lot of interest and support with photos on Haddenham.net, the Junior School website and Facebook page and in local newspapers. The photos and report on the Junior School Facebook page in October led to more than 1500 views showing the high degree of interest.
Although the campaign for a pedestrian crossing was initiated because of concern about children crossing Woodways safely, particularly now there is no lollipop lady, the crossing would benefit all members of the community on the way to schools, nursery, Youth Centre, Health Centre, park, sports facilities and bus stops.
