School children in Littleport are helping police with a new no parking scheme.

PCSO Annie Austin has been working with children at Millfield Primary School on an initiative aimed at alleviating the ongoing concerns around poor parking at school pick up and drop off times.

She arranged for the children to produce a series of letters spelling out ‘NO PARKING’ which will then be digitally placed onto a banner to be displayed at the location on Grange Lane, Littleport.

This initiative is in support of the existing single yellow lines which prohibit parking at specific times, including on the footpath and the verge next to the lines.

She said: “These children displayed their artwork as a pre-warning to parents that it is dangerous as well as illegal to park at these locations during the school run.

“It is my hope that the banner will serve as a permanent reminder that the safety of children is paramount.

“The school is in full support of the initiative and will be distributing details to parents in the next school newsletter and on their website.”
