A local nursery school have thrown their support behind the Bridge the Downs Link campaign, labelling the existing crossing of the A281 as “too dangerous”.

Tonia Jackson-Robson who runs the Jack and Gill Childcare and Forest School in Rudgwick says there is “absolutely no way” she would allow the children in her care to use the crossing.

The school specialises in outdoor activities and Tonia is clearly frustrated to have such a dangerous road nearly. Referring to the death of Pathushan Sutharsan in 2020 she says: “This tragic accident could have been prevented.”

If you would like to support the campaign please write to your local County councillor, display one of our posters and sign up for email updates.
