PUPILS from Tayport Primary School have been involved with a campaign run by Fife Constabulary to deter motorists from illegal and inconsiderate parking outside their school.

The issue was raised by local residents at a community engagement meeting held in the town.

In response to the road safety concerns, Tayport community police officer Gordon Miller launched an ongoing campaign.

Police officers and traffic wardens have been patrolling the area and educating illegally parked motorists.

To reinforce the message to motorists and to educate children, pupils at the local primary school entered a competition to design a poster in support of the campaign.

PC Miller said: “The competition was judged by councillors Maggie Taylor and Tim Brett, with the winners being Isla Manning from P2, Arron Scott from P3/4 and the overall winner Arran Graham of P7.

“This poster is to be reproduced and distributed to local shops and businesses in Tayport to again highlight this community concern.

“Fife Constabulary mobile CCTV unit attended at Tayport Primary School to monitor parking near the school.

“The winning pupils from the poster competition were shown and given the opportunity to operate the CCTV controls.”

The next community engagement meeting in Tayport will be held in the Dolphion Centre on March 9 at 7pm.
