To save money, Southwark Council is terminating forthwith the employment of several school crossing patrollers across the borough. This will affect the patrols at the junctions of Red Post Hill and Townley Road with East Dulwich Grove. Parents are organising protests, including emailing Ward Councillors, relevant Council Executive Members and Council officers.

The Dulwich Society supports this protest, and believes that the Council’s decision to do away with the much loved lollipop people is misjudged. We are sure that many of our members will agree. The Society urges its members to email their views to the Council. The addresses for such emails are as follows:
