Sussex Police has donated £460 to Park Mead Primary School in Upper Dicker to help with its on-going campaign to encourage safer parking.

The money will be used to buy four ‘Think Before You Park’ road safety boards, which will be placed outside the school to remind drivers to park with consideration, and not on the yellow zigzag lines.

PCSO Mark Carter, who was accompanied at the cheque presentation by colleague Stephen Fenn, said, “I have been working closely with the school for the past year and am delighted to be able to make this donation, which will help to tackle such an important issue.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.

Park Mead Headteacher Lizzie Field expressed her gratitude to Sussex Police for their kind donation, which was presented to the School Ambassadors.

It will discourage dangerous parking and ensure Park Mead pupils’ safety.
