We have recently opened and installed a new footpath leading from Spennithorne Pre-School car park to the school entrance.
It was brought to our attention that the Pre-School situated opposite our ‘The Meadows’ development in Spennithorne, was without a footpath for the children to get to and from the school entrance safely and we wanted to create a safer journey for both them and their parents.
The Meadows site manager Ben Douthwaite said: ‘’We knew the footpath needed doing and thought it was a good scheme to support the local community.’’
Moving the village sign to a more visible location also allowed road users to be aware of the residential area and to hopefully slow motorist down. The new footpath is proving to be a great success and Head Teacher of Spennithorne Pre-school Lindsay Evans said: ‘’I am so pleased that Yorvik stepped in and created our new footpath; it is a real bonus that they have supported our community by this very kind gesture.’’
It is a pleasure to support the local community and we hope that these changes improve the daily school run.
