New Village Crier Editors Required

Message from the Crier Editors Linda and Chloe Matthews

The December issue will be the final one for us as due to neither of us living in this area any longer, we have decided to hand over the editorship baton to other residents. If you would like to take on this venture, either alone or in co-editorship as we chose to do, please contact either us at the Walpole Village Crier or our Parish Clerk at [email protected]

We have enjoyed our time spent on the Walpole Village Crier and thank you for the feedback we have received. Now it’s YOUR turn!

School Drop-Off/Pick-Up Parking


There have been many complaints about vehicles parking in Springfield Road at school drop-off and pick-up times.

We would ask parents to be mindful of ALL children’s safety (not just your own) and would ask you to be considerate and remember do not park:

  • partially or wholly on the pavement – this restricts wheelchairs, prams, pushchairs, walking disabled.
  • near a school entrance
  • anywhere you would prevent access for emergency vehicles
  • opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction (except in an authorised marked parking space
  • where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users
  • in front of an entrance to any property
  • on yellow zigzag lines

Please remember it is an offence for a person, without lawful authority or excuse, in any way wilfully to obstruct the free passage along the highway of whatever type. This applies to vehicles obstructing pavements too and will be dealt with by Fixed Penalty Notice.

Roads are more congested than ever and top prevent accidents to both pedestrians and motorists, you can all make a contribution by applying a little thought when you park your car. Help us to keep our families and roads safe!
