They should have put up a big ruler that way kids could have checked how much they had grown every few weeks.

Gerald,

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

What would the council like to call this ' Progress ' or ' Modern Design ' . What on earth would car drivers think of it.

Is this a theme outside schools? A school in Ashton has them outside too.

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.

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.)

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.

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!
