do you still have the lollipop person


Comment by sane man on 3rd September 2010 at 02:20
i like it


Comment by Mick on 3rd September 2010 at 06:29
They should have put up a big ruler that way kids could have checked how much they had grown every few weeks.


Comment by Fred Mason on 3rd September 2010 at 09:34
Gerald,

There is a lollipop person but they are dressed as a giant eraser...


Comment by Gareth on 3rd September 2010 at 10:58
What would the council like to call this ' Progress ' or ' Modern Design ' . What on earth would car drivers think of it.


Comment by Jon on 3rd September 2010 at 18:31
Is this a theme outside schools? A school in Ashton has them outside too.


Comment by pat on 3rd September 2010 at 18:54
Yes, I think they are a great fun idea, and made me smile when I first saw them. The children must love them. Well done to whoever thought of, and designed this one.

Comment by David Barker on 4th September 2010 at 00:47
Thanks everyone for you comments.


Comment by Derek Platt on 4th September 2010 at 01:00
Where's the pencil sharpener


Comment by Ken R on 5th September 2010 at 23:53
Good one David. When were these pencils installed?
I can't see the likeness of the cow in the school yard,( thats a moo cow and not any other.)


Comment by David Barker on 6th September 2010 at 19:22
Hi Ken think the pencils were put up a few weeks ago but not sure,the cow is still in the school grounds,been vandalised a few times, nothing safe these days.


Comment by Elaine on 3rd February 2011 at 22:30
This is a cute way to dress up a cross walk! I like it. It must make people smile to pass by it or when they use it, especially the children!


Comment by Emma on 15th September 2013 at 15:10

Comment by emma on 15th September 2013 at 15:12
