Today marks the first day back at school following the third anniversary of the death of local Lollipop School Crossing Patrol Officer, Ray Elsmore.
Ray was killed by a driver whilst he carried out his crossing patrol duties on Tempest Avenue on 5th December 2012.
Residents have marked the anniversary of Ray’s passing with flowers left by his crossing.
Tributes were made by members of the Make Tempest Avenue Safer campaign,
Will always be remembered with his sunny smile and wave when we went by in the car – TS
Our thoughts are of Ray and all the family circle on this day and of course all those affected by such an unnecessary tragedy. RIP Ray the Lollypop Crossing Patrol Citizen – PC
