Many of you will be only too aware of the traffic chaos which has been caused by the road works on Blandford Road. Sadly, this has provoked some motorists into angry outbursts, some directed towards our lovely lollipop lady.
After hearing that some inconsiderate drivers had been abusing our School Crossing Patrol, the pupils of Upton Infant School decided to cheer her up by making a card to let Caroline Bugler, (known as 'Lala' to many of our pupils) know that they love the work that she does in all weathers.
It has been so lovely to see the support given to Mrs Bugler by so many children and parents, together with passing motorists who have been 'honking' their appreciation of her work.
This outpouring of support by our local community has made us all proud to be part of our wonderful Upton community.
Hopefully the drivers using the local roads as a cut through will follow the example set by our pupils in really valuing the work that Caroline does in keeping everyone safe when crossing the road.
Mrs Bugler will be 'off duty' for the next couple of weeks and you may notice some familiar faces standing in for her in the meantime...
