Pupils left in a school daze

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Although I am not from South La­nark­shire, our chil­dren go to Trin­ity High School which is our catch­ment area.

Be­fore the schools stopped in June we had a bus which picked up 11 chil­dren from Fullar­ton Park which then trav­elled to Carmyle where around 35 chil­dren were picked up and they all trav­elled to­gether to Trin­ity High.

Since the change of mileage al­lowance it has been de­cided that our 11 chil­dren are no longer al­lowed on the bus but have been given the route of Fullar­ton Av­enue, Fall­side Road, Cause­way side street, Lon­don Road where we have to cross at nu­mer­ous round­abouts, down Fullar­ton Road across the slip roads at the M74 down to Bogle­shall Road where the kids have to cross at the round­about where there are no cross­ings, then onto Cam­bus­lang Road and up to Trin­ity.

We are get­ting no sup­port from any­one at our Coun­cil of­fices such as Labour coun­cil­lor Martin Neill, John Ma­son MSP or Natalie McGar­rie, the new SNP MP.

We had done sup­port from Martin Neill at the be­gin­ning but he stopped re­ply­ing to us, Mr Ma­son has met with us once or twice but has done noth­ing and Natalie af­ter var­i­ous at­tempts to con­tact her has agreed to walk the route but that has still to be seen. Jean Bir­rell, via email.
