From this Easter, vehicle access and parking at St Paul’s Church, on a Monday to Friday during term time, between 8:15 and 9:00am and between 2:45 and 3:30 pm will only be available for those with Car Park Permits issued by St Paul’s Childcare Services and on a day when their children are attending St Paul’s Childcare Services.
Despite regular requests for the parents of schoolchildren not to use St Paul's Church drive to drop off their children or park their car, the problem of serious congestion has persisted. This has meant that legitimate users of the car park (ie those taking young children to and from the nursery, Childcare staff, and church service attendees) have been unable to park their cars.
In addition the huge number of vehicle movements has made it very dangerous for the hundreds of pedestrians including many young children going to and from the schools and nursery. An accident is waiting to happen, but together we can stop it. The car park will be regularly patrolled to enforce this requirement and we respectfully seek your co-operation to make St Paul's Church a safe area and a place where users of the premises can park.
Thank you very much for your help and a very Happy Easter.
