COMMENT: Hopefully council will find a solution

First published in News

‘COMMON sense has prevailed” said mum Lorna Mills after an appeal panel agreed that asking children to walk to school along the A40 was a bad idea.

The problem still remains that Oxfordshire County Council, for financial reasons, needs to scrap a free bus service for pupils from St Bartholomew’s School in Eynsham.

Hopefully the year’s grace for the service, because of this decision, allows the council to come up with a solution that meets its needs but does not compromise children’s safety.

They were not forced to walk, all they have to do is pay like thousands of other kids in Oxfordshirehave to. It was the parents choice to make them walk.
