Derbyshire's School Crossing Patrol Service Set To Continue

by Amber Valley Info on Friday 25 January 2019

The future of Derbyshire County Council’s School Crossing Patrol (SCP) service is set to be secured.

Next Thursday (31 January), Derbyshire County Councillors are set to agree that from 1 April the service will be funded and managed for the next three years by the council’s Public Health Department as part of the safe and active travel programme to promote physical activity.

Councillor Simon Spencer, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Highways Transport and Infrastructure, said: “We know how highly regarded the school crossing patrol service is and we’re now able to secure its future through a different source of funding.

“We all know that being physically active helps to improve physical and mental wellbeing. By securing the future of the service we aim to encourage people to walk to school, particularly at an early age, which will help set young people up with good habits for life.”

Councillor Carol Hart, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Communities, added: “We’re delighted to be able to continue to run this service. There’s been much said lately about obesity problems in young people and anything we can do to encourage safe and active travel to school will continue to be a top priority.”
