If you are taking your children to school by car and want to avoid the chaos of School Road from 18th April during the Reepham Road closure then consider Park and Walk.
Drayton Parish Council as owners of the Longdale Playing Fields are happy for people to use their car park at Longdale and walk across the playing field to and from the Infant School, PLEASE BE CAREFUL CROSSING AT THE TOP OF SCHOOL ROAD AND DON’T ALLOW CHILDREN TO CROSS ON THEIR OWN. The Parish Council respectfully asks that this is not abused or used for all day parking.
We have also been in contact with the Bob Carter Centre on School Road and have secured temporary permission for the car park at the rear of the centre to be used to assist with taking children to the Junior School in the morning and for collecting children in the afternoon but only until Reepham Road reopens which should be on or before 5th May, please be aware that car parking with be monitored and if this is abused or used for all day parking the permission will be withdrawn immediately. Drayton Parish Council asks that extreme care is taking whilst crossing all roads to and from the schools.
