Advanced notice that there will not be a crossing patrol for an interim period as Notts County Council look to recruit to replace Mr Lichfield. Mr Lichfield (Dave), finishes tomorrow (Thursday 5th) as he is relocating to the West Midlands. We would like to thank him for the years of cheerful, friendly service he has provided, both as a crossing patrol and as a midday supervisor. We’ll miss his riddles and jokes!

Dave was not due to leave us for another two weeks, but a job opportunity has come his way and he leaves at short notice. We wish him all the very best and will bid him a proper farewell during the school day on Thursday.

This from Via, who run the service:
