Police step in to help pupils

Have your say

POLICE in Eckington are hoping to set up a safe route for pupils walking or cycling to school to avoid them having to use busy roads.

Officers from Eckington Safer Neighbourhood Team want residents’ views on their plan. The route would take pupils along Back Lane from the bottom of School Street to the comprehensive school on Dronfield Road.

Police Community Support Officer Dale Merchant will host a public meeting about the idea at Eckington Business Centre on Friday at 6pm.
