84 YEAR-OLD SCHOOL CROSSING PATROL OFFICER

 

After 21 years’ service, 84 year-old Frank Moss has decided to put his lollipop down for the last time at the end of this school term. There is a presentation for Frank, at Scott Lower School, in assembly at 9am, on Friday 16 December, in which children will be able to thank him for getting them to school safely.

 

Frank has been a credit to the school crossing patrol service and has always worn a collar and tie whilst on duty.

 

Frank’s patrol site is on Hawk Drive and services Beauchamp Middle School, Scott Lower School and St. Thomas More Upper School.

 

Anita Barker, Head teacher at Scott Lower School, said: "Come rain or shine Mr Moss has helped our children cross the road safely and always with a smile. He is very much part of the wider school community and we will miss him but we all wish him a happy and healthy retirement.”

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “I want to congratulate and thank Mr Moss for his service on behalf of literally thousands of children over the years.  Bedford Borough’s school crossing patrol officers perform a vital role in helping children get to and from school safely, in all weathers, as Mr Moss has done for over two decades.”

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Nothing is more important to us than keeping children safe and Mr Moss has made a huge contribution over 21 years in ensuring that children coming to and from these three schools did so safely. We all hope he enjoys his well-deserved retirement.”
