New police officers on the beat!

Wednesday 15 March 2023

If you were at Moortown Corner yesterday, you may have seen some mini police officers handing out tickets to drivers. Over the past few weeks, a lot of our children have been writing letters about issues that concern them; Year 1 children wrote to the local councillors about the parking on Moortown Corner and that they felt, at times, it wasn’t safe.

One or our local councillors, Mahalia France Mir, responded to the letters and visited the children with some local police officers. They designed their own ‘parking tickets’ and, dressed as mini police officers, gave them out to local residents who use the parking in front of the shops.

It was fantastic for the children to get a response to their letters and then to be able to go out and share their concerns with the community.
