A puffin crossing patrol will be installed on Pasture Road in Stapleford following a petition from residents.

Nottinghamshire County Council has put aside £50,000 to £100,000 for the project for its 2015-2016 budget.

Chairman of Stapleford Community Group, Richard MacRae, and resident Kerri Blakemore, who started the petition, are both happy with this news as the crossing will serve many people who cross the busy road to access the main bus stop and after-school clubs in the evenings and weekends. Richard MacRae said: “I would like to thank Kerri Blakemore who has spent weekends and evenings helping collect names on the petition.”
