Save our Fences - Keep us Safe
Like us I'm sure you thought the safety of our/your children would be at the top of everyone's priority list. Not so. We're very fortunate in Helmshore that not only do we live in a village surrounded by the beautiful West Pennine moors but we have an outstanding local primary school. We need your help, however. Recently, DEFRA have designated 3 public footpaths across the school playing field following a campaign by a number of local residents and refused an application to have them re-routed, requiring the school fences to be removed in 3 places. The children at Helmshore Primary School need the footpaths to be re-routed to enable them to enjoy full use of the school field free from broken glass, dog faeces and other potential hazards but most importantly the fences prevent unauthorised access to the school premises by strangers. School should be a safe environment not one where unauthorised intrusion becomes a real threat. Not everyone cares about the safety of Helmshore children but we know that YOU DO. Please support Helmshore Community Safeguarding Helmshore Children, Helmshore Primary School, Lancashire County Council and most importantly the children of Helmshore by signing our petition.
