Daventry school hands petition to MP

Youngsters at Falconer’s Hill Infant School have handed a petition to the town’s MP Chris Heaton-Harris.

The pupils took on the task of gathering support for a controlled crossing on Ashby Road instead of the current zebra crossing.

It comes in the wake of the safety concerns for children crossing the road and they went to neighbouring Falconer’s Hill Junior School, The Parker E-ACT Academy and Dolphin Day Nursery to collect more than 400 signatures.
