Councillor Tim Huxtable joins with School lollipop women in protest amid fears their jobs could go

Lollipop men and women staged a demonstration in Birmingham in a bid to try and save their jobs.

School crossing patrols across the city are believed to be at risk as the city council has to make cutbacks.

The men and women gathered together in Lyndon Road, Cotteridge - complete with the orange lollipop sticks - to make their point.

They were joined by a group of anxious parents. It was organised by Tracey Wignall who has worked as a patrol crossing officer for 19 years.

“We simply don’t know if we’ll have jobs in the spring, no-one’s telling us anything,” she said.

“The rumours started last year and we sent a petition to the council with 300 signatures but have had nothing back.

“People are starting to talk again and we’re getting parents at the school gates asking us if it’s true we’re going to lose our jobs, but we don’t know ourselves.”

Tracey said she had heard that lollipop patrols in the south of the city - covering Selly Oak, Cotteridge and Bournville - were most at risk.

Over the last year, other areas, including Solihull and Walsall, have axed either all or some of their lollipop men and women.

Councils have told schools in these areas that those on the most dangerous roads will have to fund crossing patrols out of their own budgets.
