Children and parents at Blisworth in Northamptonshire are raising money to pay for the village lollipop lady themselves.
This morning they held a sponsored relay-walk around the playground of Blisworth Community Primary School. The school needs to raise £2700 in order to fund the crossing-patrol on the busy A43 for a year.
In 2010 Northamptonshire County Council announced that it would have to stop funding the patrols as part of plans to save £73 million a year from council budgets.
A43 Southbound partially blocked, stop-start traffic due to a broken down car between M1 J15A (Northampton Services) and Towcester.
20,000 people have decended on the small village of Blisworth in Northamptonshire, which was holding it's annual Canal Festival.
The event, held along the towpath of the Grand Union Canal, has been gaining popularity since it began 4 years ago and attracts boats from across the UK.
