img_3024Thank God it wasn’t worse. A parent cyclist sustained a serious head injury when he came off his bike at school pick up time. Inconsiderate parking again blocked the roads reducing visibility and no where for passing vehicles to wait.

An ambulance and paramedic arrived on scene and a gentleman was taken to A&E.  Not sure at this point if he was knocked off bike by a car, but this is what was being said by bystanders at the scene before I arrived.

As the governors letter to parents that week pointed out, we are living on borrowed time. There will be an accident. There are no parking zones there for a reason – to let traffic pass and move freely.
