Sad news

It would be remiss of me to start blogging again without first mentioning the tragic event in my ward this morning.

Cathy Gibson, a crossing patroller at St Anne's Primary, was knocked down and killed this morning while at work. My condolences go out to her family.

My thoughts are also with those who knew her, and those who were there when the accident happened this morning. I hope that they are all getting the care and support they need at this most difficult of times.

Crossing patrollers do sterling work in keeping our young people safe, and while incidents like this are very rare, it does concentrate the mind on the risks they take every day.
