An Eastbourne infant school is to get a crossing patrol for the next school year.
St Thomas a Becket has been chosen by Churchill Insurance to receive a lollipop person from September.
They’re one of 50 schools across the country to receive a patrol through a campaign supported by PTA UK and Road Safety UK, which received over 6,000 nominations.
Following the announcement, Churchill Insurance will work closely with the school, council and School Crossing Patrol Officers to recruit and fund a lollipop person and is calling for people to put themselves forward for the role.
On the campaign, Churchill Insurance's Lucy Brooksbank, said, "We have been astounded by the amount of nominations received as part of our pledge to improve the safety of school crossings.
"Lollipoppers are still the stalwarts of our communities - national treasures who bring fun and joy to the school run as well as playing a vital role in protecting our children. We are thrilled to be providing the parents and children of Eastbourne with a Lollipopper and ask any members of the local community interested in filling the role to put themselves forward with their local council."
